The subject of Two Weeks is grim: A woman dies of ovarian cancer, in her home, surrounded by her four adult children, over the course of two weeks. And the movie, clearly a personal project for commercial director Steve Stockman (who also wrote and produced), is an uneven weave of the inescapably painful and the self-consciously sitcomish (particularly in scenes between Ben Chaplin and Tom Cavanagh). But Sally Field is formidable as the dying mother. And the movie’s warm advocacy of hospice, with all the dignity such end-of-life care provides, does real, influential good.
