This movie was made to be uplifing, not showing the weepy, drawn-out process of dying, but a celebration of life and love, where family is the bedrock beneath individual personalities and interpersonal dramas. Powerfully moving.

This was a wonderful if sad movie. Life can be like that especially when it is ending. Not all movies need to be sunshine and roses!

2.5* A very sad movie about assisted suicide and how it impacts all members of a family. Life is precious from conception to natural death not assisted suicide which is the killing of a human being.

Excellent film about end of life choices when the vast number of American states do not approve assisted suicide. Well done. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Much similar to the movie "Frankie" with Brendan Gleeson.

Director Roger ("Notting Hill," "Le Weekend") Michell is such an innately classy filmmaker that he never allows the potentially sudsy material to descend into bathos. Helping his cause is a splendid cast (Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, Mia Wasakowski, Lindsay Duncan and Kate Winslet who, for some reason, looks unnervingly like Tina Fey here), all of them in fine form.
