I don’t know about you guys, but my day to day tasks don’t involve choosing who lives and who dies. It seems like an unimaginable burden to carry, but that’s exactly what hospital administrators do on a day to day basis. When a heart transplant patient dies unexpectedly it needs to be decided what will be done with that transplant heart. Does it go to the worthy regular guy who’s been waiting forever, or the rich guy’s kid that will donate enough money to keep the hospital in all the latest tech? I have to be honest, my current disgust with the healthcare industry in general has me worried about going to see this film, but at the same time I don’t know how I could not. A timely and impactful subject that seems to be handled with care, and an eclectic, but extremely talented cast with Kelsey Grammer, Julia Stiles, Janeane Garofalo, Dan Hedaya and Colman Domingo playing out this moral tragedy.
I’m just going to make sure I have some happy images at the ready for when I walk out of the theater.
