My Life Without Me

Indie actress Sarah Polley (The Claim, The Sweet Hereafter) stars in this mostly schmaltz-free tale of a young, trailer-dwelling mother who gets diagnosed with terminal cancer. Rather than burden her family with this dire news, she keeps it to herself and sets out to fulfill a list of dying wishes (including bedding a man other than her husband). The acting is good and the emotions heartfelt, but it's hard to escape the feeling that our rather selfish heroine is more a clever literary conceit than a real person. 106 minutes
