Superb talent Emma Thompson puts in a tour de force as a renowned professor approaching 50 who is diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer. She agrees to a radical and painful treatment, and the film follows the effects on her body and mind. Her emotions range from joy at her reactions to her various predicaments to fear at the prospect of facing such a difficult death. Even throughout her painful treatment, all of her thoughts and relationships are handled with a sense of "wit." Talkback immediately following the film. 7 p.m., Recital Hall, Music & Dance Building, free.
