A bereaved but curious wife gets the surprise of her life when she tracks down the address in her dead husband’s pocket, in this madcap satirical comedy. The uptight suburban matron meets the curvaceous common-law wife and illegitimate punk daughter in a lush purple lair that signals that there are a few things she didn’t know about her railroad engineer spouse. Surprise works both ways, and gangsters comically enter the picture when the women team up to search out their man’s hidden source of income. Director Kamondi relies on the chemistry of his lead actresses and some quirky casting for a sprightly romp that heals wounds as the women discover their dead lover’s Achilles heel.
