About the Movie
When Jonathan drags Jake to a grief counseling retreat for young widowers, they meet an odd group of fellow mourners, navigate comically bizarre therapy sessions, and face a dark secret that could destroy their friendship.
A funny and honest portrayal of a bereaved man whose best friend and fellow widower takes him to a weekend retreat in the woods to snap him out of his trance of grief. Wonderfully executed by a talented cast. Richard Lovejoy's haunted thousand-mile stare as Jake rings true. Belly laughs are elicited as the wheels fall of the events coordinator's plans to make these men happy, or else.
The window into "The Widowers"
...an honest portrayal of various emotions. Funny, sad, complicated. A must-see for the ages.
Funny, Authentic, Unique
From concept to execution, The Widowers jumps off the screen and always feels like there is a vision behind each and every scene. While so many independent films feel haphazard, director Jonathan Scott Chinn has to confidence to avoid gimmicks and tell his story like a classic hollywood film focused on storytelling and authenticity.
The cast, lead by writer/star Richard Lovejoy, is always pushing each of their roles to the limit. It’s a true joy to watch them (especially stand out Ryan Andes) find the delicate balance between comedy and emotional depth. With so many independent films flooding the market each day it’s refreshing to see one focused on bringing you into a unique world, showing you a new way to look at grief and the bravery it takes to move on.
