Life or Something Like It (2002) - Synopsis

Life or Something Like It (2002) - main synopsis imageWhat would you do if you thought you only had one week left to live? Would you radically change what was left of your life? Re-evaluate your values and priorities?

Those are the last questions in the world that Lanie Kerrigan (Angelina Jolie) thought she’d ever have to face. A feature reporter at a Seattle television station, Lanie thinks her life is perfect. Perfect job. Perfect apartment. Perfect wardrobe. Perfect boyfriend.

But her "perfect" world starts unraveling after a homeless street seer (Tony Shalhoub) tells Lanie that she leads a meaningless existence, and will die the following week. When the savant’s other predictions come true, Lanie begins to re-examine her life and priorities, all in a whirlwind one-week period. As if things weren’t crazy enough for Lanie, romantic sparks fly as she reluctantly teams with a cameraman (Edward Burns) with whom she has long been at odds.
