One of my favorite of Ms Plimpton's performances was in an obscure movie called "My Life Is In Turnaround".

My husband and I are in our early 30s and we have just moved in with my mother-in-law with advanced Alzheimer's. We love Raising Hope and the genuine heart in the show. We were particularly moved by the the show where it is revealed that the Martha Plimpton's character, her husband and their son, are all living with the great grandmother, not because they can't survive on their own (as is the original inference), but to take care of the great grandmother. It was handled with so much grace and humor...and not like anything else on tv.
