“The Funeral Guest” is about a lonely woman named Emily, who attends funerals so she can be around others. She attempts to comfort people and, at one particular funeral, she is mistaken for a dead woman’s sister. She is welcomed into the family as “Katie” and begins attending dinners and birthday parties. After a while she gets in really deep water when a man in the family falls for her. She doesn’t know how to tell him she’s not actually related to the deceased woman, but she is eventually caught in the lie. Will the man, who was interested in her, forgive her? Or will he move on in anger?
The movie features the theme of the importance of filling loneliness with people in your life. It is a quality film and we are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve-plus.
