My Life Without Me
from Film Forum,10/23/03

As she moves through what doctors tell her will be her final days, an ailing young wife and mother reassesses her life in My Life Without Me, a new drama from director Isabel Coixet that has some mainstream critics praising it and others calling it an overly ponderous downer. The acclaimed young actress Sarah Polley (Guinevere, Go, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) is drawing raves for her performance.

Anne Navarro (CNS) says, "The movie's strength is that it does not revert to mawkish sentimentality or turn into a disease-of-the-week telefilm. However, watching working-class Ann try to continue on with her life in her tiny trailer park, kissing her girls' foreheads or making them special pancakes, is nonetheless a dismal experience. It … makes one reflect on how dismal the prospect of death is in the absence of faith."
