Two Days

Year: 2003
Country: United States
Run Time: 87 minutes

A comedy with a black heart, TWO DAYS is about Paul Miller (Paul Rudd) who decides to make a documentary about the last two days of his life before he commits suicide. He makes the rounds of last goodbyes, seeing friends like Stephen (Mackenzie Astin) and Nancy (Stacey Travis), who thinks Paul will embrace life again if he has sex with her. Meanwhile, Paul's conflicting crew, including Stu (Adam Scott) who wants to turn the film into a life-affirming saga, and Charlie (Karl Wiedergott) who wants to maintain the "integrity" of the project, even if it ends in suicide, battle for Paul's attention. Stu meddles in Paul's nonchalant family and enlists the girlfriend who dumped Paul the year before. Stu becomes more and more involved in saving Paul, leading to a stunning climax where Paul decides if he should kill himself, or just move to the west side. The film was shot from three points of view, one indicated by film, the other two by video. Donal Logue and Joshua Leonard also star.
