Heartfelt yet unflinchingly frank story of a dying mother (the transcendent Sally Field) and the four adult children who've come to be with her in her last days including her eldest son, a filmmaker (Ben Chaplin), who hopes to tape her for posterity. First-time feature director Steve Stockman accomplishes the near-impossible in mixing naturalistic tragedy with genuine laughter that rises from the human condition, generating tears from each. Some rough and crude language and a graphic depiction of the ravages of cancer. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
