Hbo’S Production of “Wit”.

18063. Hbo’S Production of “Wit”.

This paper discusses Wit, an HBO movie (available on videocassette), which is based on a play by Margaret Edson. In the movie, Emma Thompson plays a woman with advanced cancer who agrees to undergo an intense, experimental treatment therapy. It is argued that the movie provides a realistic depiction of the medical system and its procedures. In addition, the movie provides examples of how healthcare professionals might behave in real life. Unfortunately, there are cases in which doctors are overly concerned with lab research and their own personal glory, which results in them being less compassionate than they could be with their patients. In addition, the existing system often causes patients to feel depersonalized, objectified, and lonely. KEYWORDS: movie review wit ovarian cancer doctor patient relations. MLA Style. 5 pages, 0 footnotes, 1 bibliographic source (the film). 1,466 words.
