Tales of untimely deaths are inevitably heart-wrenching, but throw in a baby and a video camera, and our eyes will be puffy for weeks. In My Life, Michael Keaton plays a soon-to-be father who's been diagnosed with kidney cancer. With a few months to live, he documents his final days and compiles his acquired wisdom on videotapes to pass onto his son. Though we know the end from the beginning, there's no stopping the sobfest.
