Hanging Up has a unique plot involving three estranged sisters who develop their relationship as the result of the oncoming death of their hated father. The trio begins to learn about each other as the result of coming together for the death of their father, work through their own personal problems, and develop a relationship that will last for a very long time. The film also explores the interesting features involved with the death a family member that prevented the rest of the family from being close together, the local community’s reaction to it, and how they should present their rather taboo feelings to their friends and family members. The film also deals with how each sister has been harmed by their loosely attached family. Hanging Up was directed by acclaimed actor Diane Keaton. The film is based on a book by the same name written by Delia Ephron and was adapted with the help of her sister. Hanging Up features Meg Ryan, Diane Keaton, and Lisa Kudrow.
