review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's been 6 months since Rachel has disappeared, so her twin sister Lucille (both twins played by Najarra Townsend) wants to make a memorial video for her, with all of Rachel's best friends - Rachel's boyfriend Jack (Richard Banker), their couple therapist/healer Selma (Mercedes LeAnza), Rachel's mysterious and cynical friend Geneva (Sarah Connine), Rachel's lesbian best friend forever Sonia (Brit Manor), and Sonia's dykey girlfriend Madeline (Che Landon). Of course, Lucille also has another motive for this, to finally find out what had really happened to Rachel, and she figures one of those present just has to know ... but the whole thing soon goes downhills as things are revealed about Rachel that ought to have remained unrevealed - like she and Geneva have actually worked as high class prostitutes on the side, without Jack knowing it, Jack having had an affair with Selma, Sonia having been madly in love with Rachel and the like, and the whole thing soon turns into chaos, including everybody having sex with everyone and the like - and over the course of the evening, Lucille grows more and more desparate. But to be fair, Lucille hasn't been entirely honest with her guests either, she actually set up hidden cameras everywhere to sell the evening off as the pilot of a new reality TV show, "America's Next Top Killer", and has the whole meeting secretly monitored by a TV producer (Eric Roberts). But be all that as it may, one question's still unanswered that seems to be a priority for everyone involved, and that's what has really happened to Rachel?

 

At its heart, Good Mourning, Lucille is a good old-fashioned whodunnit, and one that sets in at what's usually the finale, when all the suspects are assembled in one place for the killer to be called out or betraying him-/herself - and like all good whodunnit, who actually did it does take backseat behind the way to get there, the narrative rather than the conclusion takes center stage. The cool thing about Good Mourning, Lucille though is that it's totally aware of genre mainstays, plays with them, breaks with tradition, and plays everything entirely tongue-in-cheek ... and as a result is just really good at entertaining its audience!
