Synopsis

Collection of comedy dramas. 'Just One Day' (2013) stars Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga as single parents George and Edith who meet when they accompany their children to an admissions tour of Middleton University. Heart surgeon George, who is with his son Conrad (Spencer Lofranco), seems somewhat uptight, which initially leads to a clash of personalities with carefree Edith and her daughter Audrey (Taissa Farmiga). However, as the day progresses and the pair get to know each other better, sparks begin to ignite and they both realise what has been missing from their lives. But with the tour only set to last the day, will their connection have a chance to develop? 'Sunshine Cleaning' (2008) stars Amy Adams and Emily Blunt as two sisters who finally begin to break free from their father and make a life for themselves. The future once looked bright for Rose Lorkowski (Adams) as at high school she led the cheerleading team and even dated the star quarterback. Now she's a thirty-something single mother, working every scrap of overtime she can in order to send her son to a better school. In the hope of raising more money, Rose persuades her stay-at-home sister Norah (Blunt) to join forces with her on a new crime scene cleaning venture. As they start to get to grips with the aftermath of murders, suicides, and other messy situations, the sisters soon find their business growing, along with a generous helping of mutual respect and understanding. 'Personal Effects' (2009) stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Ashton Kutcher. 24-year-old professional wrestler Walter (Kutcher) leaves the national team to return to his hometown following the brutal murder of his twin sister Annie (Sarah Lind). When he accompanies his mother Gloria (Kathy Bates) to bereavement therapy sessions at the local community centre, he meets Linda (Pfeiffer), the widowed mother of teenage deaf-mute son, Clay (Spencer Hudson). As the court case for his sister's killers runs its course and he struggles to comes to terms with the dual losses of his career and his sister, Walter seeks comfort in the arms of Linda and the pair find they no longer require therapy.
