PREVIEW PRIOR TO GENERAL RELEASE
Susan Sarandon shines as a mother spending her last days with her family in Roger Michell’s skilful recrafting of 2014 Danish drama Silent Heart.
Taking place at a seaside retreat over a single weekend, Lily has made it clear to her husband and adult daughters (Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska) that she plans to take her own life in the face of a debilitating terminal illness. The characters cope with this emotional and ethical dilemma in conflicting ways that uncover hidden secrets. One of the UK’s most versatile directors, Michell (Notting Hill, Enduring Love, Le Week- End) has assembled an outstanding cast to unravel this moving and complex human drama. Much more than a dramatised debate about euthanasia, Blackbird is a film about death that is full of life.
