Jo's (Laura Heisler) world is thrown into utter disarray when her wife Amanda passes away. Her cozy domestic life shattered, her writing career tossed aside, Jo desperately starts chasing a dream that she and Amanda had once shared - starting a family together. Jo asks her late wife's brother, Jamie to be her sperm donor. Craziness ensues, in the form of a visit to the fertility clinic's psychologist (Annie Potts), and a love triangle with her two best friends, NATE (a straight man with his own tragic past--played by Raoul Bhaneja) and LISA (Jo's best friend, a lesbian punk photographer and bar owner--played by Anna Fitzwater). AS GOOD AS YOU is a human-scale, character-driven film set in a sleepy, safe Los Angeles; it's a serious comedy about trying to grieve the right way, and maybe growing up a bit in the process.
Heather De Michele lives in, CA, USA.
