Gathered one summer in a beautiful shoreline town, three generations are drawn together by their patriarch. With endearing moments of humor and uplifting spirit, Harvest is a portrait of a family awkwardly yet delicately hanging on to what was, what now is, and to one another.Written by
This is a film that primarily is told through Josh, the grandson in a family with a patriarch living with cancer. The matriarch has dementia. The family lives in a quaint northeastern town with beautiful houses by the ocean. Victoria Clark plays Josh's mother, a divorced woman in the famous sandwich generation, caring for her parents in their home, while being a mother still to her college aged son. Josh has two uncles, one still living in the paternal home and one who is a local politician in the town where they all live. There is tension between the brothers that adds an interesting subplot to the film. What really stands out in this film is the lovely cinematography, tight script and fabulous performances by a cast of wonderful accomplished actors. They create a family that anyone who has experience life and death with a family that has some quirky dynamics will recognize and appreciate. The real star of the film is Marc Meyers, the young film director who also wrote the screenplay. It is astonishing how he was able to bring such a professional full bodied movie to the screen with enormous sensitivity. He is a filmmaker to watch.
