Paul Miller, a self-described "failed actor," sets out for his final act and his ultimate role: the last two days of his life ending with his suicide on tape. He tries to reunite with old friends and family members to say one last final goodbye, all of whom attempt to coax him out of killing himself or dismiss his intentions as a joke. Written by
I just picked up Two Days on a whim at the rental store, and was more than pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I found Paul Rudd's performance moving and the rest of the characters to be involved in a sort of black comedy. I don't usually comment on movies but I wouldn't want the previous user's comment to dissuade someone from seeing a worthwhile film. Subjects don't have to be dissected in order for them to have meaning, so I don't feel that the film needed any improvement. I found the crafting of the screenplay itself to be original, even for an independent film. In response to the prior user's comment on the lack of reflection on suicide, I'd like to contend that Two Days is not a film about suicide, it's a film about life.
