Thought provoking movie, sad but true.
8 August 2017 | by michelejmccullochSee all my reviews

Congratulations Jeremy on writing and presenting such a thoughtful and insightful movie on what is potentially an extremely sensitive topic. You explored the real life challenges of the terminally and critically ill. The movie, Fade to Black was also a reminder of our mortality. This is one that should be viewed by all irrespective of your view either through TV or IMDb.
