Two-time Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali stopped by “CBS Mornings” to discuss his forthcoming film, Swan Song, but he also delivered a good word.
In Swan Song, Mahershala plays the role of Cameron, a loving husband and father who is expecting his second child with his wife Poppy (Naomie Harris).
When Cameron is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief.
As Cameron grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined.

The movie had a deep impact on me to the point where I needed to take a couple of months off afterward just make sure that I let the character go a bit.
