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:

Here Awhile, with the working title Anna, is directed by American actor / filmmaker Tim True, making his directorial debut with this film. The screenplay is written by Csaba Mera and Tim True.

I've always liked Anna...it's nice to see her play a character with real substance. A very important topic that in a rational world would not be so divisive.

That's an interesting (and scary) idea for a sf story ...

'A very important topic that in a rational world would not be so divisive.' Very well said, kitanoO. Human beings are so terrified of death that they don't want another to even have the right to die if they are terminal and suffering greatly. It's just fear...big time fear of death. Ernest Becker wrote a great book and won the Pulitzer Prize for The Denial of Death in 1974. Great book about this whole fear of death humans have.

Well, on a lighter note... "I am not afraid of death. I just don't want to be there when it happens." -Woody Allen

It's about the performances. Story not so much. And the performances look so so ...
