Field looks appropriately wiped out. Although given how brittle, awkward, and completely uninteresting her younger co stars are, she could just be exasperated -- she's doing all the lifting.
You will have to like Sally Field, you will have to really like Sally Field, to sit through Two Weeks.
The movie's warm advocacy of hospice, with all the dignity such end-of-life care provides, does real, influential good.
The well-intentioned screenplay is all over the map, with many scenes too truncated to go anywhere dramatically or emotionally. Is a cancer movie that leaves you dry-eyed an oxymoron?
There is much to like in this poignant movie about those who leave this life and those left behind, but Two Weeks never quite pulls everything off.
Attempts at black humor, although not unrealistic during such a trying time, fall flat. Far worse than not laughing at the jokes, you're unlikely to be moved to tears at sad moments.
Sally Field gives a brave and convincing portrayal of a woman facing death. It's a heartbreaking performance and Field attacks the mental and physical pain facing Anita with veracity.
offers a little too much dysfunction and not enough humor for my tastes
TWO WEEKS offers some positive views on hospice care and tackles head-on a theme that few American features do, but it lacks the gravitas of something like the European drama THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU.
An awkward hybrid of earnest weepiness and bouncy lightheartedness.
A sentimental weepie about coping with death that tries to mix laughter and tears but induces only groans.
Sally Field's flawless performance as a mother whose imminent death reunites her four grown children elevates a fairly formulaic melodrama... into something considerably more memorable.
Sally Field, Julianne Nicolson, Ben Chaplin, Clea DuVall, Glenn Howerton
Four siblings rush home to say a last goodbye to their very sick mother. When she hangs on, they find themselves trapped together for two weeks. Through laughter and tears, they come to terms with the tragedies we all must face and rediscover the joy we find in each other. The film chronicles the Bergmans' alternately heartbreaking and hilarious struggles, intercut with Anita's own reflections on her life and her family. What happens to a family when the one person who holds it together can't hold on anymore?
Sally Field is amazing. She absolutely breaks my heart in this movie. Anyone who has had a close member pass away from cancer like myself just recently, can relate to this story. This movie takes you to where many of us have been when they are all coming together to say goodbye to a loved one. This movie will have you back and forth from tears to laughter. Sally field is one who never disappoints with another brilliant performance. A must see.
Sally Field is formidable as the dying mother, and this bittersweet dramatic comedy movie's warm advocacy of hospice, with all the dignity such end-of-life care provides, does real, influential good.
A brilliant and touching movie! Sally Field is simply great. Ben Chaplin and Tom Cavanagh are fantastic as well. The story plot centralizes around a family of four who are dealing with their mother's dying. Great connection of family, kinship, and the bond reaffirmed between siblings. They (altogether) deal with the decline of their mother's health, and the grief surrounded in laying her to rest in scattering her ashes.
Memorable scenes: 1) The grocery store, where the boys are buying stuff and they get thrown out. 2) The siblings are debating whether to carry through with scattering their mother's ashes, one by one, they work through it.
Sally as always is great but the movie is a downer and the rest of the cast is only average.
