Two teenagers struggle to cope with cancer, hope, despair, and each other.
1 August 1998 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a fine little film that didn't get the promotion or publicity it deserved, not even here in NZ where it was made. It's a sensitive portrayal of two very different kids struggling to cope with illness, self-esteem, and relationships that only occasionally lapses into cliche. Nikki Si'Ulepa is excellent as the cheeky, street-wise Marty--she picked up a NZ award for her role--and middle-class-ordinary-teenager Kirk Mead puts in a solid performance as the kid who thinks he has everything to lose, and nothing to live for. There are some lovely images (especially up on the roof), and the scene of the two riding on the prow of the yacht predates Titanic. A good film for teenagers who aren't too cynical about this sort of story. Applause, too, for director Ian Mune who made a fine, honest film here on a little budget.
