Reach for me ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dying is hell, at least for Alvin, a terminally ill widower confined to his hospice bed with nothing to chew on but bitter memories. The wonderfully irascible Alvin, unforgettably portrayed by the great Seymour Cassel, correspondingly makes life hell for everyone else around him, as everyone in there explores the age old quandary of how we greet our finals days, and who will be there with us at the end. A stirring, life-affirming drama, the excellent ensemble cast includes Alfre Woodard, Adrienne Barbeau, Johnny Whitworth and Lacey Chabert in beautifully crafted performances refreshingly free of false sentimentality. The world observed from his hospice bed proves the final proving ground where Alvin learns to make the most of the time he has, and discovers the love he never knew was so close at hand
