Description We aren't dying the way we used to. We have ventilators, dialysis machines, ICUs-technologies that can "fix" us and keep our bodies alive-which have radically changed how we make medical decisions. In our death-denying culture, no matter how sick we get, there is always "hope." Defining Hope tells the story of patients dealing with life-threatening illness as they move between ICUs, operating rooms, hospice care and home. Diane is a nurse caring for end-stage cancer patients when she is diagnosed with ovarian cancer herself. 23-year-old Alena undergoes a risky brain surgery that destroys her short-term memory. 95-year-old Berthold lives with his elderly wife who struggles to honor his wish of dying peacefully at home. Defining Hope follows these patients and others- and the nurses that guide them along the way- as they face death, embrace hope, and ultimately redefine what makes life worth living.

I was fortunate enough to get a copy of this documentary by accident while visiting my parents in Connecticut. I had not heard anything about it, but it seemed interesting enough so I gave it a shot. The documentary was a very interesting and informative film. One of the major themes of the film was the incredible amount of pain that many women go through in a given year in this country. The level of pain that many women have to deal with each day is often very difficult to watch. Many of the women interviewed in the film had lost a child or had had a child in the past. Many had experienced some form of abuse and are dealing with the effects of these experiences on their bodies and minds. One woman, I think, was very well-known, but she was probably the most open and honest person in the film. A part of the documentary was dedicated to explaining some of the basics of the first trimester of pregnancy, but I think that was the only part of the documentary that was actually needed. This documentary is very well-done, but it does not delve into as many aspects of the topic as it could have. However, the documentary did include some information on common problems that occur in pregnancy, such as miscarriage and stillbirth, which was interesting. However, these are only a small portion of the issues that women have to deal with, and they were not explored as much as they could have been. The film also showed some interesting facts about the abortion clinic in New Jersey, where I live. I was very impressed with the fact that this was not an anti-abortion clinic, but instead an abortion clinic in New Jersey that was willing to share their story. In fact, there are some very good interviews with clinic employees and patients, and it was great to see them. Overall, the documentary was informative and well-done, but I think that the information could have been better utilized. It was the same story, but they could have included some more of the details about the clinic and the patients. Overall, I highly recommend this documentary. It is well-made and informative and is extremely well-done. It has some very powerful and emotional interviews, and it definitely touched me. If you are a woman, you should definitely see it. If you are a man, you should definitely see it. It is a very interesting documentary, but the information could have been better used.

I just saw this documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, and it was a pleasant surprise. It was powerful, but the subject matter is not new. So, there was a good mix of the old and new. The idea of being a teenager and trying to figure out your sexuality is very familiar to many people. However, the specific stories of the young people in this documentary are interesting. There is a brief, but very emotional story about how young boys and girls grow up. The documentary is also rich in the personal experiences of the three young people. There is a story about a friend's mother who is dying of cancer. Her son is the one who supports her. The same friend has a friend who is gay. His stories are fascinating, and the director did a great job of balancing the stories. The main point of the film is to inspire. It's one of those movies that you can watch multiple times. It also has a lot of politics in it. The father of the main character is gay and is an attorney. The son is very active in the local community, and is taking an undergraduate course at a university. It is clear that this film is not pro-gay. I have always found this to be a problem, because the issue of homosexuality is a difficult one for many people. But this documentary is not meant to be pro-gay. The main message is to make sure that kids grow up in an environment where they feel safe, have the support they need, and that they are not discriminated against. In my opinion, this is a film that is very timely, and is certainly a must-see. It's a very important documentary, and I recommend it to anyone. It's worth seeing.

Some of the main points of this documentary is that there is a pretty good correlation between the number of female-headed households in a nation and the percentage of the population that is female. This information is pretty well-established for countries like the United States and Canada, and not only for some foreign countries. So the point of this documentary is not to discuss why there are more women than men in countries like the United States, but rather to see how many countries and why. Also, the documentary does a good job at making the point that countries with relatively high female populations have higher average income per capita than those with lower female populations. This is not surprising since women have more rights in a country with a higher percentage of women in the population. Some of the research done on this subject can be found in this fascinating video-clip from the documentary. Overall, this is a very interesting documentary that has some good information on the topic. The topics covered in this documentary are not always the topics that are the most popular in the United States. There is some very interesting information about the cultural practices of other countries, which makes this documentary seem more like a selection of facts and research from around the world. Overall, this is a good documentary that provides some good information about the question of why there are more women than men in a country. It is also a good documentary that does a good job of presenting the research on this topic. I would recommend this documentary to anyone interested in this topic.
