"What the hell kind of movie is this?": A.M. Homes channels Nancy Reagan.

Now that her husband has been officially "removed from view," Nancy survives in exile by constructing an elaborate secret life on the Internet. After dabbling with official duties she logs on to the Psychic Friends Network as "STARPOWER," flirts with a middle-aged Harley-rider under the name "Lady Hawke," then slips into an Alzheimer's support group as "Edith Iowa."

"After a lifetime of trying not to be like everyone else, in the end she is just like everyone else."
