Fisrt of all,i'll be honest that i haven't read the book,so i don't how different it is or if it would change my opinion of this film,but i doubt it.
It's a story of how this young girl wants the rights to her own body and to say yes or no to helping her sister,who is dying from cancer.
It'a subject that's awkward because it can't really be fair on someone created for the special purpose of keeping their older sister alive,but this isn't to say the love isn't there,it certainly is. So when,after many operations,the younger sister claims enough is enough,how can you argue with that?
Of course we go further into the story and things have more of a backstory than first would appear.
It's a film that feature's a bittersweet love,charmingly done. It's a film with humour that comes at times it's needed. It's a film that tackles some heavy stuff with brilliant acting,maybe it pulls at the heartstrings too much for some,but i thought it did it's job very well indeed.
I plan on reading the book one day,so if makes this film look bad,it must be quite something because i feel this film is a five star film.
