“Woman’s weepie” for the ages – Coixet even includes a clip from MILDRED PIERCE in homage. The story’s straight & simple –Polley’s a young mother dying of cancer — but the performances are remarkably deep (including wonderful cameos). It should be depressing, but to the contrary, somehow it glows with transcendent optimism. More on MY LIFE WITHOUT ME.
