Cloudburst

Romantic road movie starring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as Stella and Dot, an aging lesbian couple who escape from a nursing home in Maine and drive to Nova Scotia on a quest to become legally married.

Stella and Dot have been together for 31 years. Now in their seventies, Stella is hard of hearing and Dot is legally blind. Dotty's prudish granddaughter Molly (Kristin Booth) decides the best place for Dot is a nursing home that will provide all the necessities. So Stella and Dot decide to make their way to Canada, where same-sex marriage is legal. En route, they pick up a young hitchhiker, Prentice (newcomer Ryan Doucette). A small-town boy turned modern dancer, he is returning to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother.

A rousing, frequently rowdy comedy with considerable crossover appeal, thanks to a pair of juicy lead performances by Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis.

In its peaceful moments, it's a gem, but the wild stabs at wacky comedy are usually groaners.
