The subject of euthanasia is currently a hot topic in my country, one where there seems to be a majority of people who'd accept it. So this made for TV movie concerning the topic (and based on a true story) must have seemed a lot more controversial when it first came out. Seen in today's light, however, it seems like it's holding back in some areas. Some important scenes seem to be missing, like the fact we never see Ron Howard's character's arrest, booking, and subsequent bail. The trial doesn't seem that hard hitting or passionate by any of the participants. And aside from a briefly seen newspaper headline, there isn't a feeling of great media interest in this case. However, the movie does feel somewhat balanced, showing evidence both for and against what Howard's character does. Also, the acting by all the participants is pretty good. In the end, this is an okay movie, no classic, but does have enough interest to get you to watch it all.
