How to Die in Oregon
Added to my films
Euthanasia is not an easy subject, but director Peter Richardson's film is a tender portrait of the patients, families, caregivers, and advocates who, since 1994, have chosen physician-assisted suicide thanks to Oregon's Death With Dignity law. With intimacy and insight, the film explores the details of those who choose to legally end their lives. The heart and soul of this story is 54-year-old Cody Curtis, whose loving family and infectious good-humor are her primary weapons against the debilitating symptoms of liver cancer. Curtis explores the possibilities of ending her life, and as a prescription for a lethal dosage of Seconal waits at her bedside, she shares her doubts, fears, and feelings. Through her story, and those of the loved ones and the doctor who cares for her, a subject that on the surface seems bleak turns out to be a celebration of the human spirit in all of its courage, dignity, and compassion.
