- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Family members and a few others gather to spend a weekend with the matriarch who's decided to end her life before ALS robs her of complete control of her body.
It's a seemingly normal weekend at the coastal home of Lily (SUSAN SARANDON) and Paul Walker (SAM NEILL) who've invited their longtime friend, Liz (LINDSAY DUNCAN), and adult daughters Jennifer (KATE WINSLET) and Anna (MIA WASIKOWSKA) to gather for an important event.
All, including Jennifer's husband, Michael (RAINN WILSON), and their teenage son, Jonathan (ANSON BOON), along with Anna's on-again, off-again girlfriend, Chris (BEX TAYLOR-KLAUS), are fully aware of the reason for the get-together.
And that is that Lily is planning on committing suicide on Sunday evening due to having ALS, rapidly losing control of her body, and wanting to go out on her own terms. As the weekend proceeds and with the family members having varying and changing responses to the plan, various family issues come to the forefront, all of which serve to cloud the issue at hand and the decision that Lily has made.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- The impressive cast might be a draw to some, but older teenagers seem the most likely audience of any kids.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For language, some drug use and brief sexual material.
