Not only does town busybody Fannie Mae bring medication to the residents of a nursing home in Harrison, Texas, she also brings the gift of gab and a thorough command of local knowledge, useful among folks who are inclined to forget the years of their births or their religion. Her conversation starters allow the home's residents to swap stories and reminisce about their lives, revealing rich and complex histories that both burden and sustain them in the present. Like a piece of Mozartian chamber music, THE LAST OF THE THORNTONS carries you along with droll humor to a conclusion that resonates with gorgeous poignancy.
"…wonderful and heartbreaking…finds a cosmic poetry in the rhythms of old age…" —NY Times. "…made with delicacy, craft and much care…[THE LAST OF THE THORNTONS] makes the kind of quiet inroads into our hearts that music does. By the end you're surprised at how deeply—and almost imperceptibly—you've been affected." —Variety.
