One morning Mel, a mousy, harried New
Yorker with a thankless job and an even-less-appealing
boyfriend learns that the tumor in her throat is cancerous
and the diagnosis is terminal. She then hears that both her
job and her relationship are coming to an end. Rather than
wallowing in self-pity, she embarks on an endless spending
spree, the kind of self-indulgent wish fulfillment that we
have all fantasized about.
“The Guitar” is inspired by a true story. Overflowing with
an energy and vitality that belies the initial darkness of
its narrative, “The Guitar” is a transcendent respite from
the turmoil of our troubled times.
