Eleanore and the Timekeeper

Documentary maker Daniele Wilmouth looks at her 85-year-old grandmother Eleanore and 62-year-old, mentally retarded uncle Ronnie, who have lived together in rural Pennsylvania for decades. Cognizant of her advancing age and waning vitality, Eleanore undertakes to find a group home for Ronnie; the new arrangement is a striking success but leaves her to cope with the abrupt rearrangement of her life's central relationship. Admirers of Sarah Polley's Away From Her (2006) will find much to appreciate in this similarly dry-eyed account of life's endgame.
