Watched You Don’t Know Jack last night …
Al Pacino is great as the quirky Jack Kevorkian and hopefully this movie will re-spark the debate about Physician-Assisted Suicide.
Brenda Vaccaro plays Jack’s sister and is fabulous! I love her so much. Whenever I have a scratchy voice I walk around saying “I’m Brenda Vaccaro for Playtex Tampons.” … it makes me laugh but nobody but me seems to remember her as the pitch woman for Platex. Not even youtube has her commercial … am I crazy? Or did she do tampon commercials?
If you get a chance to watch the movie – I recommend it. It has the perfect amount of pathos, humour and thoughtful dialogue on such a difficult subject. I think it will have you and your family talking about what your wishes are for a dignified death and having that conversation is an important one to have now instead of later.
