As a woman, I felt very touched by the two girls struggling through their beginning adolescent years. The hopes (and race) for your period, the love/hate relationship with siblings and/or friends, and most importantly, trying to make sense of everything that's happening to you all at once. These girls in particular had an extra amount on their plate because of an ill mother. That is the very real part of all this. Life is full of these changes, and we have no control over these events and just have to learn to accept and live through them.
I did think the drama towards the end was a little drawn out, even though it made me come to tears regardless. However, I am still glad to see such a beautiful relationship between a mother and her daughters, as well as the genuine love between the mother and her new husband. I have yet to see a man portrayed in this light when dealing with illness. I have also yet to see (in a movie or in my real life) someone so positive when faced with the possibility of death as this. As fabricated as it may seem, it gave me hope and something to strive for if I ever become a mother some day.
I recommend this movie to men and women alike, especially for anyone who remembers what it's like to be a teenager, or is one themselves.
