Life Support follows a manic Roman Catholic family who is preparing for the death of their dying father, Bob (Brian Dennehy). He's still alive and kicking, but knows his fate. Eddie (Larry Clarke), the son supposedly in charge, isn't ready for any of this, especially having to deal with his stepmother, Dawn (Lesley Ann Warren). Together with his siblings, Eddie struggles over many end-of-life decisions, including potentially pulling the plug should the time come - all in front of a dying Bob, who argues that while he's still alive, he's calling the shots.

One of the last scenes in the Movie between Eddie and Sue is shot in front of the immortalized Bracken House in Hancock Park (Kim Basinger's home in LA. Confidential. She won the Academy Award as the Veronica Lake lookalike character ). The perspective is from the front yard so the house is never seen. It was shot at sunset with 2 takes in 20 minutes. See more
