;The Event, production still;
Set in Manhattan`s fashionable Chelsea district, among the neighborhood`s large and varied gay population, The Event is an intricately structured inquiry into one man`s death that becomes a celebration of his life. The story opens as Assistant District Attorney Nicole “Nick” Devivo (Parker Posey) launches an investigation into the death of Matt Shapiro (Don McKellar), a young man whose apparent suicide bears striking similarities to a number of other recent cases. The speed with which Matt`s body was cremated, and the conspiratorial silence that enshrouds his friends and family, are more than enough to prompt Nick`s suspicions. Though she has recently lost her own father to a lingering and painful illness, she believes that assisted suicide is wrong. It is also against the law, and she is obliged to ferret out the facts. Her interviews with Matt`s loved ones trigger a series of flashbacks that bring memories of Matt back to life for them. The Event is a bittersweet drama of love, loss, and the amazing capacity we have to prevail in the face of tragedy.
