Tammy's Always Dying, Director Amy Jo Johnson's sophomore feature film stars Felicity Huffman as an alcoholic, suicidal mother, and Anastasia Phillips as her co-dependent yet frustrated daughter, caught in a dysfunctional dance between the bleak and the ridiculous. With a vein of wry humour throughout, the soulful black dramedy is situated within the wintery, working class world of Hamilton’s industrial East end.
Visually, we fully embraced the faded colours of the season, the hard texture of steel and concrete, the cheap wood panelling, and the fake glitz that fills Tammy’s world.
