Four siblings rush home to say a last goodbye to their very sick mother. When she hangs on, they find themselves trapped together for two weeks. Through laughter and tears, they come to terms with the tragedies we all must face, and rediscover the joy we find in each other. What happens to a family when the one person who holds it together can't hold on anymore?
Writer and director Steve Stockman's feature film debut explores the moments that define life as a family ultimately learns to live through dying in Two Weeks, available on DVD September 18 from MGM Home Entertainment. When four siblings find themselves unexpectedly together for two weeks, forced to deal with the terminal illness of their beloved mother, they rediscover the deep love they have for one another and find laughter through tears. With powerful and moving performances by two-time Academy Award-winning actress, Sally Field (Best Actress, Places in the Heart, Best Actress, Norma Rae), Ben Chaplin (Murder By Numbers), Emmy Award-nominated actor Thomas Cavanaugh (Love Monkey), Julianne Nicholson (Little Black Book), Glenn Howerton (Must Love Dogs) and Clea DuVall Zodiac), Two Weeks effortlessly shifts between humor and heartbreak while capturing the physical reality of a parent's death and its impact on the family. The film mixes reflections on life and family from Anita Bergman (Field) while chronicling her children's day-to-day struggle to deal with her illness and impending death. As three brothers and one sister gather at the Bergman home for their mother's final days, simmering tensions and unresolved familial problems explode, relationships are challenged, and each sibling must find their own way of coping with tragedy and each other.
