A dawdling affair that never finds its own rhythm. Early on, it gets lost in its own earnestness and never finds its way back.

Middling drama about euthanasia, worked out through a sprawl of underdeveloped characters.
Just sit, feel a little blue and watch Parker Posey wander through New York in an ugly conservative suit. In "Blade," at least she'll get a snazzier wardrobe.
Aggressively drab and granular, the movie feels like a late-'80s AIDS passion play given an ill-fitting post-Sept. 11 makeover.
Has such quiet power that it is actually not depressing, and the cast follows suit with Dukakis, Carver and Posey, rising to the occasion.
