A sterling cast enriches ‘Emerging Master’ Thom (“The Hanging Gardens”) Fitzgerald’s moving portrayal of a group of friends confronting one of society’s most controversial legal taboos: assisted suicide. When Nicola (Parker Posey) investigates a series of suspect deaths for the New York district attorney’s office, she confronts a practice that straddles the morally ambiguous ground between mercy and murder, and those who endeavor to make life and death decisions with dignity.
