The most important lessons of life often come towards the end of the journey. Emma Thompson stars as a cold and rational English lit professor whose live is upended when she is diagnosed with ovarian cancer. As a patient, she now becomes the object of study in an aggressive course of treatment. Her solace is the compassion found from a caring nurse and former mentor. Christopher Lloyd, Eileen Atkins and Audra McDonald costar in this powerful drama about compassion and hope.

      Comments about this product:

      This movie is amazing. To take a highly respected scholar, diagnose her with final stage cancer, and watch, no experience... what she goes through: her thoughts, emotions, even changes in her character. This movie is heartbreaking while filling one with great inner strength to fight the toughest battle -- to stay alive. Only one spoiler: I think of this movie everytime I eat popcicles.
