LULLABY explores the power of life, its trans formative moments, and re-connections between loved ones. Estranged from his family, Jonathan discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours’ time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients’ rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother, sister, and his love and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts – a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient, and a no-nonsense nurse. Through this intensely life affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.
Q-Tips say: The Q’s liked it. It was an excellent rental movie- not sure it is in the theaters anymore.
Mrs. Q says: A very moving story about death and dying. A good “reality check” for all. A bit of humor at times. She enjoyed the contrast of the old man dying and the little children fighting to stay alive.
Mrs. Q says: Make sure you have a tissue nearby, you might need it – but see it, you will enjoy.
