“Molly’s Theory of Relativity” is a story of a 28-year-old astronomer who loses her job. The loss of employment comes at a most inconvenient time, as does most unemployment experiences. Halloween is spent trying to piece her life back together again.
Molly has help though. Her friends and family attempt to assist her through this difficult time (the film covers 18 hours of her life). Molly’s help consists of her hubby, her father-in-law, a 9-year-old trick-or-treater, her grandfather and a six-year-old neighbor who may be a figment of her imagination. It is all quite curious. She also receives advice from three deceased relatives, to add to the plot.
“Molly’s Theory of Relativity” unveils how we feel about employment and to what extent our family is affected by our choice of job. The movie explores the position that our family bonds are tight. After all, death is just a relative thing.
