The Event

With a cast that includes Parker Posey, Olympia Dukakis and Sarah Polley, you can pretty much assume this one's a small-budget indie drama. Structured like a mystery with a determined cop investigating a rash of assisted suicides in gay neighborhoods, the thrust of the story (that the AIDS crisis is far from over) is fairly important, but the script feels like an Oxygen Network melodrama of the week, and the acting just isn't up to snuff. 110 minutes
