A memory that won't go away. . .
9 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie a very long time ago on HBO. It was a night that I could not sleep, perhaps it was around 2:00AM. I remember being taken by the characters and the pace of the film. I was interested the whole way through. My aunt died of cancer and I could understand the pain she was going through after watching this film. It is well done, and a gem. I remember the scene when Jami Gertz is brushing her hair and she realizes what is happening to her in the hospital. It is a powerful scene that simply will not leave my memory. When an image leaves an imprint in one's memory, then you know you have come across a great film.
