In Florida, teenaged Max (Cree Kawa) ends up in the Suncoast hospice center, the same facility as Terri Schiavo … whose case sparked a right-to-die debate. Max’s single mother Kristine (Laura Linney) and sister Doris (Nico Parker) cannot care for him anymore, as he is dying of terminal brain cancer. As the Schiavo case plays out right in front of them, they are mourning their own losses and opportunities, which includes Doris not having a normal teenage life. Things change when she meets a Christian activist named Paul (Woody Harrelson) and at the same time becomes popular with her party hardy classmates.

”Suncoast” is in select theaters, see local listings, and streams on HULU beginning February 9th. Featuring Nico Parker, Laura Linney, Woody Harrelson, Ella Anderson and Matt Walsh. Written and directed by Laura Chinn. Rated “R”
