About The Clean House: Lane, a doctor, values order in every aspect of her life – her career, her house, her emotions, her relationships. Her live-in Brazilian maid, Matilde, finds cleaning makes her sad and yearns to be a stand-up comedian; while Lane’s sister, Virginia, finds solace in cleaning and secretly takes over Matilde’s duties. When Lane’s husband, Charles, falls in love with a terminally-ill patient, Ana, everything that was clean and tidy for Lane is thrown into disarray, and she must turn to the women in her life to help sort out the mess. Blending whimsical humor with wisdom and compassion, this romantic comedy about love, sex, death – and finding the perfect joke – proves that shared laughter can heal almost anything.
