Emotional, moving...
26 May 2000 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

As an avid movie watcher, few shows manage to move me closer to tears than this, and this is from a guy in his mid-twenties. The characterization was intense, and the movie moves slowly at times, but never fails to show you, in words or the feelings portrayed, what goes on in Sue's mind as she ponders her decisions. The feelings she has and the reasons she gives her family and friends around her for the decision she made shows how much she must have struggled before she came to it. On one hand, she doesn't want to leave her family, especially her son (brilliantly portrayed by Miko Hughes), alone; but on the other hand she wants to spare them the agony of caring for her as her illness progresses, when she will lose every sense of control in her life. The poignant moment was when her son learns of her decision to end her own life, when he reminds her tearfully of her earlier promise that she'd fight the illness to the end without giving up. From then comes a long period of intense media attention, mostly unwanted, and gross misunderstanding and manipulation by people she trusted, before her son finally accepts and respects her decision.

This is one movie which might just make you change your mind about euthanasia.
