You'll have to excuse me. I have something in my eye.
Ray Romano has had a very interesting career after his sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond ended in 2005. He's co-starred in several TV shows, and popped up as himself in everything from Maron to Funny People. But he's in a new indie-focused phase of his career, delivering a great performance in The Big Sick and will appear in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman (if it ever finishes filming).
Here, he plays the neighbor of Michael (Mark Duplass), who's recently been diagnosed with a terminal disease. Michael decides to end his life on his own terms, and the two grow closer as they play games, eat meals and goof off together. They also take a road trip to a pharmacy that will provide Michael with the life-ending drugs he needs. As with almost all of Mark Duplass's films, expect a healthy mix of laughter and pain.
Paddleton premieres at the Sundance Film Festinva later this mornig before arriving on Netflix on February 22. Wherever you're seeing it, pack the tissues.
