What They Had

A middle-aged woman (Hilary Swank) returns home at her brother's urging to deal with her Alzheimer's-afflicted mother (Blythe Danner) and the reluctance of her father (Robert Forster) to let go of their life together. This tangle of serious domestic conflicts is wrapped around the central issue of evolving parent-child dynamics. It's fairly standard stuff for indie dramas, but playwright-turned-filmmaker Elizabeth Chomko and her talented cast tackle it with empathy and efficiency. 101 minutes R.
