The modern tear-jerker for today's audiences. By today everybody knows the story for this film; boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, boy discovers girl has terminal illness.
Even though I am a guy, I cried at the end of this (something very rare). Well done all around. Great acting and direction, with a brilliant music score and very well adapted from the book. Without a doubt in my mind, the greatest romance film ever made between the 1970's - the present. 10 out of 10.
