“Blame” is a drama that follows three combative sisters who visit their mother for the first time in an Assisted Living Facility, which they forced her to move into. The film opens in a non-linear fashion, with a fateful phone call made by one of the sisters, Maude, outside the Assisted Living Facility. This call is intercut with the flashback of the sisters’ arrival, their reminiscing upon the childhood they shared with their brother, Bryan, and their mother’s repeated denial of her daughters visit through an unsuspecting Nurse Jackson.
Dorothy Hunter, played by Karen Lynn Gorney (“Saturday Night Fever”, “The Sopranos”), looms large over the story from afar as the tension builds with her each denial. Suddenly, when a conflict simmering under the surface reaches a boil, it becomes a full-blown crisis, turning a family on edge into a family on the verge of falling apart.
“Blame” explores how siblings can revert to their adolescent squabbles regardless of age and asks the question – can a broken family in crisis put the past behind them and reconcile?
