True to experience
This movie hit very close to home as my mother decided to stop all medical intervention 4 years ago. We didn't have the messy family dynamics but there were 13 family members in the room from great grands to her husband so many personalities. This movie did a great job of revealing the process after a loved one makes a choice to stop medical intervention except not everyone dies so quickly. She was not overdosed on morphine but she was heavily dosed to keep her comfortable and not aware she was suffocating slowly. One day of waiting for all the hoops to be jumped through and then it took 2 days for her to die and like in the movie the room exploded with cries. If you want to understand the experience this is a good movie to see.
