The Guitar

Movie Summary

Director:
Amy Redford
Released:
2009
Rating:
R
The Guitar begins one morning when Mel, a mousy, harried New Yorker with a thankless job and an even-less-appealing boyfriend, learns that the tumor in her throat is cancerous; the diagnosis is terminal and it seems that both her job and her relationship are kaput. Rather than lying down and dying then and there, she embarks on an endless spree, the kind of self-indulgent wish fulfillment that we have all fantasized about. Written by Amos Poe, and inspired by a real story, this beautifully realized parable speaks volumes about living. Overflowing with an energy and vitality that belies the initial darkness of the narrative, The Guitar is a transcendent respite from the turmoil of our troubled times.
