A Million Happy Nows
‘In no uncertain terms, this is a fantastic movie.’
– After Ellen
Lainey Allen is a soap opera star at the height of her career, with a beautiful caring partner and a luxurious Hollywood lifestyle. When Lainey begins to forget her lines, her concerned girlfriend Eva takes her to the doctor. A shock diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s is revealed and Lainey is forced into early retirement. If this is sounding like the plot of a, well, daytime soap opera you’ll find this is one of the films many surprises. Lead actresses Crystal Chappell and Jessica Leccia are, in fact, soap opera stars and have often portrayed on-screen couples in long running soaps such as The Guiding Light. This, however, doesn’t detract from the compassion and sincerity that A Million Happy Nows brings to its subject matter. Be warned: tissues will be required.
