How to Talk to a Widower by Jonathan TropperBeautifully crafted, Fantastically funny. Compulsively readable. Jonathan Tropper has earned wild acclaim—-and comparisons to Nick Hornby and Tom Perrotta—for his biting humor and insightful portrayals of families in crisis and men behaving badly. Now the acclaimed author of The Book of Joe and Everything Changes tackles love, lust, and lost in the suburbs—in a stunning novel that is by turns heartfelt and riotously funny.
Doug Parker is a widower at age twenty-nine, and in his quiet suburban town, that makes him something of a celebrity—the object of sympathy, curiosity, and, in some cases, unbridled desire. But Doug has other things on his mind. First theres his sixteen year-old stepson, Russ: a once-sweet kid who now is getting into increasingly serious trouble on a daily basis. Then there are Dougs sisters: his bossy twin, Clair, whos just left her husband and moved in with Doug, determined to rouse him from his grieving stupor. And Debbie, whos engaged to Dougs ex-best friend and manically determined to pull off the perfect wedding at any cost.
Soon Dougs entire nuclear family is in his face. And when he starts dipping his toes into the shark-infested waters of the second-time-around dating scene, it isnt long before his new life is spinning hopelessly out of control, cutting a harrowing and often hilarious swath of sexual missteps and escalating chaos across the suburban landscape.

This post sparked a conversation in our Facebook community about what movies if any resonate with our readers and their grief experience. We got a ton of response and the movies were so different and diverse, which of course is no surprise because grief is so unique from person to person. I have lovingly linked each one of these to their profile on the Internet Movie Database because I am a glutton for punishment. We could have gone on for several more, but 64 is our magic number. Let us know which movies we missed in the comments below or on Facebook. Hey do you like subscribing to things? I am desperately trying to find the name of a movie… I remember very little about it unfortunately.
To be honest, I don't go out actively looking for movies about widowers, grief, or moving on. If I happen to watch a movie that's about a widower.
