For Lily (Susan Sarandon), doctor-husband Paul (Sam Neil), daughters Jennifer and Anna (Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska, respectively), and their partners and offspring, the annual Thanksgiving weekend at Lily and Paul’s lovely beachside home will prove to be unlike any other. Why? Because Lily is nearing the end of her battle with ALS and has chosen to end her life via lethal injection on the Monday following their family reunion…

‘This is a well written, moving story bolstered by an outstanding cast. Fifty years—FIFTY YEARS—after making a memorable screen debut in Joe, the majestic Susan Sarandon is still at the top of her game… This is Sarandon’s movie and she deftly handles the moments of light humour as well as the inevitable heavy scenes. Everyone in the supporting cast is terrific, but the standout is Mia Wasikowska, [who turns] Anna into a sometimes maddening, sometimes heartbreaking, complex character…’—Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
