Chief Dan Duty definitely realize that a film follow-up to the bubbly, entertaining and starmaking sleeper achievement that was his Emmy-winning “Schitt’s Spring” wouldn’t be pretty much as basic as reordering its triumphant equation onto the requests of a component. Fortunately, the holiday-themed comedy-drama he also wrote and stars in, “Good Grief,” feels distinct. In the event that “River” was a tart nibble with a splendidly gooey focus, “For hell’s sake” — about defeating misfortune with irritating companions in luxury areas — favors its exquisiteness and pleasantness in a more adjusted whirl.

We initially meet Toll’s Marc, a painter turned artist, at the Christmas soiree he and his enchanting, top of the line creator hubby, Oliver (Luke Evans), toss consistently at their London digs. The celebrations come to an in a real sense crashing end, however, when Oliver leaves right on time for a work outing and passes on just a street or two away in a fender bender.

Immediately, in a pleasantly interesting memorial service scene, Duty shows how sorrow is never a certain something (and not unfunny all of the time): For a neglectfully self involved entertainer from one of the films adjusted from Oliver’s YA books (a one-scene Kaitlyn Dever), passing is a snuffed-out establishment. However, in David Bradley’s exquisite performance as the father who came to accept his son’s writing about princesses, sorrow and gratitude can beautifully coexist.
