The Event

Rated R 110 minutes 2003

Manhattan prosecutor Nick (Parker Posey) is charged with looking into the untimely death of city resident Matt (Don McKellar), a musician who had AIDS. As she questions Matt's loyal family members -- mother Lila (Olympia Dukakis) and sister Dana (Sarah Polley) -- she comes to learn that his closest pal, health-care worker Brian (Brent Carver), is an ardent believer in assisted suicide, and that he threw Matt a big party before his death. This presents a dilemma for humane but dutiful Nick.
