Storyline

Lily is dying and by the end of this weekend, she'll be dead. She suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and is planning to pursue euthanasia with the help of her husband Paul and invites her family and her longtime best friend Liz to the house so they can spend her final days together. But there's tension between her daughters, the uptight Jennifer and the wayward Anna, and it threatens to destroy her perfectly laid-out plan. Written by The Guardian

User Reviews

 
Unoriginal and predictable
10 January 2021 | by cgheskethSee all my reviews

One of those films in which not much happens, it's just people talking to each other. In this case it's a wealthy dysfunctional family with a terminally ill mother. Great acting by Susan Sarandon, but otherwise forgettable.
