An Excellent Movie for all who have been diagnosed with cancer
16 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

LEAP of FAITH with SAM NEILL and ANNE ARCHER This movie is so good because it deals with the emotional problems that come with the diagnosis of Cancer. My wife and I have had a successful nineteen year battle with Malignant Melanoma including twenty trips to an America Clinic The movie deals with all the nuances from day one that occur when this problem arises and it shows the correct attitude for those who are suffering from Cancer,that is so important to understand for successful recovery. In my opinion this movie should not be lightly dismissed. All of the actors play their parts believably as it is not a high action movie, it is about real people and a true story. All should see it sufferers, family and carers, it's a must
