A successful salesman displays competency to gain your confidence, and employs empathy to earn your trust. It’s the latter you have to beware of. While selling an expensive siding job in “A Healthy House,” the salesmen insinuate themselves into the lives of Tim and his elderly father, through issues such as the father’s battle with cancer and recently being widowed, and Tim’s failed dream of being a screenwriter and suffocating marriage. When the sales team breaks the trust, embroiling father and son in a scam, it makes for an explosive scenario, with the future of the home hanging in the balance, and the father’s care in question. The wickedly funny, and emotionally powerful “A Healthy House,” is at once deeply personal, while exploring themes that are universal, family, the march of time, life and death.
