Great movie that puts you in a position that has you constantly questing ethical boundaries. Makes you realise there is no right side as you are torn apart between the limitless love of a parent for... Read more their children and the moral obligations that those parents have towards their children. Hats off to those families that battle with cancer. In a nutshell- thought-provoking and touching.
I really enjoyed this movie, however, havent read the book so I had nothing to compare it to. All the actors played great roles.
Although the movie was watchable, I enjoyed the book so much more. I found alot was left out of the movie and it ended differently. I guess if you haven't read the book, you'd probably enjoy it alot more.
I enjoyed this movie, however I felt a little let down as I had read the book before.
It was a great choice in cast with Abigail Breslin and Joan Cusack were fantastic!
Few tears for sure.
Great movie. Another tear jerker especially for those with family members who have battled and lost with cancer.
I have read the book and this is so very different, but I still enjoyed the film in it's own right. Great acting.
I loved this book. It was everything you could want from a book. A laugh, a cry and something that pulled at you and to top it off it was beautifuly written. This movie would be great if you hadn't... Read more read the book. If you have read it, it doesn't stay true to the book at all. Even though the filming was good, there's a good colour to it and excellent acting (Abigail Breslin is fantastic as normal) but it left me wanting something closer to the book.
It is a very thin screenplay that relies on touching people's emotions through a sick kid - as such it is lazy film making.
A thought provoking movie--difficult for all characters involved. Can ethics keep up with modern science?
Quite a good movie. I think it was a good teaching tool for those of us who have watched it. It is most helpful to confront such a situation before we get involved emotionally ourselves.
A thought provoking movie, and great acting. Hadn't read the book. Found the switching back and forth to different times a little distracting, but enjoyed the movie nevertheless.
