Description

Lily (Susan Sarandon) and Paul (Sam Neill) summon their loved ones to their country beach house for one final gathering after Lily decides to end her life on her own terms after a long battle with ALS. The couple is planning a loving weekend complete with holiday traditions, but the mood becomes strained when unresolved issues surface between Lily and her daughters Jennifer (Kate Winslet) and Anna (Mia Wasikowska). Joining the collective farewell are Lily's son in law (Rainn Wilson), her lifelong friend (Lindsay Duncan), daughter's partner (Bex Taylor-Klaus) and grandson (Anson Boon). Her story is ultimately one of hope, love, and a celebration of life.

  • Not cool

    Ok, on the positive side, you get a cast of great actors, in-depth story, relatable family problems, and some beautifully shot scenery. On the down side, it is never ok to romanticize suicide. On so many levels, this movie sends a wrong message about taking life in your own hands. It is utterly sad to see the main character asking herself the question, at the time of ending, ‘where am I going’? Don’t be fooled into believing there is no answer to that question. The answer is that there is a God, and his name is Jesus Christ. In Him there is love, peace, and eternal life for everyone who believes in him. In Him there is no fear of death, because in Him we have eternal life. Don’t wait with accepting Christ as Lord. It’s a free gift. God bless.
  • Super Joyless Movie

    Not one funny thing in the whole movie. They dragged the overdone drama out till the bitter end. Go see “The Farewell”, instead.
  • Brilliantly Acted + A Truly Wonderful, Important Story

    Anything with Bex Taylor-Klaus is always 10/10, and getting to see her act with legends makes this movie even better.
