As Good as You

Laura Heisler leads an outstanding cast in this poignant and witty film about a bereaved woman searching for meaning and purpose in the aftermath of her wife’s death. Jo (Heisler) enlists her brother-in-law Jamie (Bryan Dechart) as a sperm donor in an effort to salvage her dream of raising a family. Along the way she leans a bit too heavily on her two best friends, a lesbian punk photographer named Lisa (Anna Fitzwater) and a straight male barfly named Nate (Raoul Bhaneja).

The screenplay by Gretchen Michelfeld is consistently tender in its portrayal of grief, even as the film becomes a kind of willful, triumphant comedy. Director Heather de Michele navigates the tonal shifts with expert timing, good taste, and craftsmanship. The film also features Peter Maloney, Karis Campbell, Elizabeth Herring, and Annie Potts.
