Legendary Actor and Academy Award Nominee Danny Aiello Stars in One Moment, Award Winning Indie Film

Welcome to the Sandwich Generation.”— Deirdre O'Connor, writer/producer/directorKANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, USA, April 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- One Moment is making its Kansas City debut at the upcoming Kansas City Film Festival April 12 – 18th. The humorous film is a heart-warming story of middle-age siblings struggling to manage their lives, while also caring for their recently widowed, aging father. One Moment stars legendary actor Danny Aiello, Academy Award nominee, in his final screen performance before he passed away in December 2019. Writer/producer/director Deirdre O’Connor makes her directorial debut with One Moment, which received accolades at the Beaufort Film Festival (BIFF), Beaufort, SC and Cinequest Film Festival, San Jose, CA.

The film was awarded Best Comedy and Best Actor (Danny Aiello) during BIFF and was a top trending hit movie during Cinequest Fest. Of more than 100 films at Cinequest, One Moment was highlighted in San Jose Mercury News as “1 of 12 films you should see.” IMDB’s founder and CEO listed his favorite films of Cinequest 2021 - One Moment was one of them “featuring a great final performance from Danny Aiello.”

Rotten Tomatoes’ “Top Critic” Randy Myers from San Jose News wrote, “Writer/director Deirdre O’Connor’s heartfelt, sentimental and immensely relatable feature runs on just a little long, but fondly embraces dysfunctional families in all their pain and glory.”

This comedy resonates on so many levels. After his wife’s recent death from Alzheimer’s, Joe McGuinness moved in with his daughter Caroline and her teenage daughter. It is not an easy adjustment –for anyone. Joe is demanding and difficult and stubbornly believes he is still capable of running his own life –despite evidence to the contrary. Caroline and her sister Fran put everything on hold, rearranging their daily schedules, careers, and personal lives in order to assist their aging father. Two out-of-town siblings do little to help –but, when they do, offer impractical and uninformed solutions that only add to the upheaval and chaos. Although the family is at odds as to how best care for their father in his final years, they are united in wanting to ensure his well-being and help him find peace of mind–without them losing their own. Welcome to the Sandwich Generation.
