Hilarious and touching, The Hilariously And Touching, is a film by comedian and actress Jessica Jones about her son Luke, a boy who was killed by a drunk driver while riding his bike in North Carolina in 2016.
Jones’ father is a veteran who was a police officer and firefighter.
The family was not given a funeral, but they were left with a small memorial outside their home.
Jones, a black woman, said the funeral was a “disgusting, disheartening” experience.
“I’m angry and I’m sad for Luke,” Jones said.
“My heart aches for him, but I’m angry for my family as well.”
Jones said that while she was watching the documentary, she was struck by the amount of time that it takes to process a death and grieving.
“A lot of people are going to get this movie, it will be over by the time it ends,” Jones told CBC.
“But I’m hoping for a little more than that, so that people don’t go through what we did.”
