Dearly Departed

"Mean and surly." That’s what Raynelle Turpin wants on her husband’s tombstone. When the pastor, preparing the eulogy, becomes effusive about the dead man’s virtues, she comments wryly, "That’s because you didn’t know him till he was old and sick."

The death and funeral of a family patriarch would seem to be a dark subject for comedy, but Dearly Departed manages to be both lighthearted and moving, as well as extremely funny.

Dixie Swim Club

Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships.

The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
