Independent Film Channel is airing the movie, Eulogy, a dark comedy.
I liked it.
Good to see Debra Winger (b. 16 May 55) again.
I liked Zooey Deschanel (b. 17 Jan 80) in this movie. The Kate Collins character fit her well this time. I did not care for her much as DG in Tin Man.
The imdb summary of Eulogy (link above) says, "Son Daniel is a secret porn actor."
I think that's incorrect. I sure never caught that in the movie. His wife, however, is another story (the video).
For anybody out there who wants to see Eulogy, TVGuide says the movie will air again on IFC:
Wed, Sep 17, 5:10 AM
Mon, Sep 22, 7:00 PM
Tue, Sep 23, 4:35 AM
(The movie is rated R, not PG13.)
A few quotes I got from imdb (link above):
Kate Collins: Could one of you *please* tell me one nice thing I can say about your dead father.
Lucy Collins: [after a long pause] He often called me Andrea for no reason.
Daniel Collins: I was Barry.

Kate Collins: [reading a letter from Ryan out loud] Did you really leave me again? After all the seasons I spent waiting, watching out the window, listening at the door, waiting for the news of your return? For the news that you realized that someone important was waiting for you. A whole lifetime I've been waiting. I can't believe you're not coming back. I can't believe I'm supposed to stop waiting. I can't believe you left me again...
Kate Collins: Grandpa didn't leave because of you, it was because of you he kept coming back. I hope you all realize that.

I didn't check to see if that was an exact quote or not, but it's close. She just kinda pulled out this letter she had from Ryan and read it, I think, more out of desperation to find something to say for her grandfather's eulogy. So it was this odd mix of funny yet kinda sad/true.

UPDATE posted 16 Sep 08:
I just discovered a song that goes well with the movie, Eulogy.
It's Willow Tree, by Chad VanGaalen.
It's currently a top track at elbo.
Or you can Google it.
