Very Moving and Emotional Movie
12 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to be able to watch this movie on t.v. here last week and i must say i was moved to tears on more than one occasion. It is an emotional movie that goes into the life of Jenifer Estess and the emotional impact being diagnosed with ALS has on not only her but her family. I found the movie well worth the watch, it taught me a lot about the disease that i didn't know and that its well worth the fight to try to find a cure.... I found the movie was one i couldn't move away from, it took you on a journey from before diagnosis until she couldn't move at all for herself anymore. It was a heart wrenching movie for anyone who has a sister, brother, mother, father or close family or friend who can only imagine what it must have been like for all of them to go through the pain of knowing that ALS is a death sentence. The acting was excellent, a full range of emotions was displayed. I could basically not fault it for what seems like an honest account of not only one life but a family as a wholes life which was effected by such a cruel disease.
