Anna Camp Heads Home in Terminal Illness Film 'Here Awhile' Trailer
"This is really hard for me… and I need your support." 1091 Media has unveiled the official trailer for an indie drama titled Here Awhile, which is arriving on VOD in June after originally premiering last fall. The film stars actress Anna Camp as Anna, a terminally ill woman who returns to Oregon to reconnect with her estranged brother while simultaneously making the heart-wrenching choice to end her life – putting to use the unique "Death with Dignity Act" in Oregon. The cast includes Steven Strait as her brother, along with Joe Lo Truglio, Chloe Mason, Kristin Taylor, Reza Leal-Smartt, and Dana Millican. This isn't the first film about assisted suicide - there's Million Dollar Baby and The Sea Inside, along with Me Before You and the doc How to Die in Oregon. It's a tough topic to even talk about, not to mention make a film about, that always brings out intense emotions from everyone. This film looks like they handle it with compassion.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tim True's Here Awhile, direct from 1091's YouTube:
