Aro Recommended Wit


USA 2003, 99 minutes
Dir. Mike Nichols
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama


Aroview: The dramatic and comedic talents of Emma Thompson flourish in a brave, heartfelt performance as a terminally ill literary professor with a sharp-wit and a passion for poetry.

Confined to a hospital bed, she reflects on significant moments in her life as a spinster academic while the receiving the cold comforts of the medical fraternity. Admirably restrained for the most part but perhaps inevitably sentimental, veteran dir. Mike Nichols retains the pared-down theatricality of Margaret Edson's stageplay, affording it an intimacy that is key to its power.
