A CANDID CONVERSATION WITH WRITER/DIRECTOR M.E.DOLAN
Everyone has a family...
The dysfunction's just a matter of degree... And the Fitzpatricks
all have Ph.D.'s.
Jack Fitzpatrick's death managed to undo
what took forty-some-odd years of secrets, bickering and alienation
Filmmakers M.E. Dolan (writer/director/producer) and Luis Remesar (writer/producer/editor) have carefully crafted their feature film script LIVING IMPAIRED to take advantage of the exploding popularity and cost-effectiveness of the digital video format and its pristine transfer to film to maintain the budget in the "micro" range, and thus insure a high financial return.
In the same spirit of such critically and financially
successful films as THE BIG CHILL, DEATH AT A FUNERAL, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE and MY BIG, FAT, GREEK WEDDING, LIVING IMPAIRED is driven by an ensemble of complex and real characters -- both family and friends -- who have joined together at "Jack's Own Hole" (the Fitzpatrick family's fishing camp) in Tom's River, New Jersey to bid farewell to Jack, their deceased patriarch.
