    My Life Without Me - -09/26


    My Life Without Me (2003)
    Synopsis: Ann is 23-years-old, she has 2 young daughters, a husband who > spends more time unemployed than working, a mother who hates the world, a father who has spent the last ten years in jail, and a job as a night
    janitor in a university that she could never attend in the daytime. They
    all live in a trailer, on the yard of her mother's house, in the outskirts
    of Vancouver. However, this gray existence changes completely when, after
    a medical check-up, a doctor tells Ann that she has very little time left
    on this earth. Learning that she has hardly two months to live, Ann
    decides to keep her condition a secret, and refuses to tell anybody--not
    even her husband--about her time remaining. She does not want people
    around her with long faces, and obsessed with her approaching death. Ann
    starts to make a list of things to do before dying, which she completes
    little by little. The list targets a wide range of things to which she
    must attend, including carrying out tasks like: saying exactly what she
    thinks to certain people; as well as getting herself some fake
    fingernails. Unexpectedly, Ann discovers an appetite for life that drives
    her to live her last days with a sensual and furious intensity she had not
    known before. During this short time, she prepares her daughters for a
    life without her; she meets a solitary wounded man, whom she seduces; and
    most importantly, Ann faces what remains of her life with a certain
    steadfast courage she never knew she possessed.

    The trailer for this made me cry--when she is making a tape of birthday messages for her daughters...

    I probably won't go to see this--I'd be up all night re-writing my will.
