Look, the honest to God truth, I'm down here because my mother is dying. I want you to do this for her... Yeah, it's like her last wish, something she never had... Yeah, she really wants high-speed Internet access... No good she'll be dead by then. Is there some rush fee I can pay?

"Two Weeks" takes you from laughter to tears and back again
I saw "Two Weeks" at the Hampton Film Festival in a packed theater. While "Two Weeks" is a serious film about a family going through a tragic experience, it is also very funny and true. Stockman, who wrote and directed the film, manages to capture the humor and emotion of a family as they cope with of the impending loss of their mother. It is a brave and honest film. Sally Field is wonderful as the strong and funny matriarch who stares death down. Her performance is powerful and complex. Ben Chaplin, Tom Cavanaugh and Julianne Nicholson deliver honest and subtle performances. They truly seem like a family sharing all of the affection, sorrow and conflict you would expect of siblings going through such a difficult experience. The film is funny and moving. I will be going to see it again when it opens in NYC on March 2nd.
