Last night, I watched the movie Two Weeks with Sally Field. While I hadn’t ever heard of the movie before now, I found out that it’s been out since 2007 on DVD as it’s one of those Indie films which I had somehow missed.
For those of us who have aging parents and relatives, this movie poignantly touched me in many ways. The complexity of family relationships is evident here along with the reality that we all face when we pass away and when we come face to face with grief when a loved one passes away (especially a mom).
Honestly, it’s not a movie I would feel compelled to watch again as I have with others. But I tend to watch movies about relationships and people dealing with real-life situations. Grief seems to bring out the stark reality in relationships and this one does just that. If you’ve endured a similar situation, this may hit too close to home. But I think it does just that, in a good way. It showcases the conflicted emotions that we endure when we are faced with the death of a loved one.
It was reviewed as a dramedy which I think encompasses Two Weeks well. It’s not all laughter nor tears. It’s the enmeshment of life’s reality. If you’re interested in seeing more, please click on the image below and it will take you to Amazon.
Have you ever seen it? I would love to hear from you if you have as I’d like to know what you thought of the movie. Please let me know.
