Two Weeks is a 2006 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Steve Stockman and starring Sally Field. Ensemble cast also includes Ben Chaplin, Julianne Nicholson, Tom Cavanagh, Glenn Howerton and Jenny O'Hara.

It released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in theaters on March 2, 2007, in select theaters, and was released on DVD on September 18, 2007. However, it was screened at the Hamptons International Film Festival on October 20, 2006, and is often cited as a 2006 film. Two Weeks received mostly negative reviews from critics, although Field's performance was praised.[2][3][4] At the 7th AARP Movies for Grownups Awards, Field received nomination for Best Actress.[5]


Four siblings return home to their mother's house, in North Carolina, for what they think are the last few days of her life. Suddenly, this unexpected family reunion extends uncomfortably as she hangs on, and they find themselves trapped together for two weeks, forced to face her death and also their connection with each other.



Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 19% approval rating based on 26 reviews, with an average rating of 4.4/10. The site's critics consensus reads: "Sally Field gives it her all, but this excessively maudlin family drama feels like it takes Two Weeks to finish."[6]
