IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Fifty years after making a memorable screen debut in “Joe,” the majestic Susan Sarandon is still at the top of her game as Lily, who has lived a long and rich life, from her activism to her marriage to a loving husband Paul (Sam Neill) to her two grown daughters, Jennifer (Kate Winslet) and Anna (Mia Wasikowska). Lily has ALS, and her illness has reached the stage where it’s a struggle for her to get out of bed in the morning. Rather than spend her final months hooked up to tubes, Lily has invited the extended family to her Architectural Digest-friendly home in the Hamptons — and once the weekend is over, her husband, who just happens to be a very successful doctor, will administer a concoction that will put Lily to sleep, never to wake up again.

This is the setup for Roger Michell’s keep-the-box-of-tissues-close, family melodrama Blackbird, a remake of the Danish film Silent Heart. It’s a great-looking film, from the autumnal beauty of the exteriors to the exquisite set design of Lily’s home. This is a well-written, moving story bolstered by an outstanding cast.—Chicago Sun Times

“Director Roger Michell (“Venus,”Notting Hill”) cast this well and earns stellar on-the-nose performances from Sarandon, Wilson, Duncan and Wasikowska.” Movie Nation
Cast Kate Winslet, Susan Sarandon, Mia Wasikowska
