by Roger Michell Gala Premieres

Lily is terminally ill. After considering all the possibilities, she has made up her mind: with the full support of husband Paul, she wants to put an end to her life before she is unable to do so. Before Lily takes this final step, the whole family will gather at their country house. Her best friend and her two adult daughters, Jennifer and Anna, are joining alongside their partners and children. With three generations under one roof, and the oppressive feeling of farewell in the air, unpredictable fears and conflicts soon rise to the surface, and unsuspecting secrets come to light. Filmmaker Roger Michell’s ode to the preciousness of life is a remake of the Danish family drama SILENT HEART. It features a fantastic, exceptionally talented cast, including Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska.
