A really moving true story
22 April 2003 | by (Lincoln, England, UK) – See all my reviews

I found this story hugely moving from the outset. The story centers around 3 main characters. Sadie, the ever-loving, very devoted mother. Richie, her very caring partner, and Luke, their son.

Luke was born very prematurely, weighing only 1lb 4oz. It was doubtful that he was going to survive very long at all, but thanks to the will-power and caring of his mother Sadie, he seemed to be hanging in there. Sadie has an amazing connection to Luke, knowing instinctively when he's ill or unhappy. The whole film shows how determined one mother was to keep her son alive, at any cost, even that of her marriage or sometimes her mind. Excerpts from Sadie's diary are read, giving narrative to the tale. As well as showing small clips from Luke's later life, that'll never be. In the end though, there are some really hard decisions to be made. When Luke takes a turn for the worse, Sadie and Richie have to ask a stark question: What is this little life ultimately worth?

Amazing performances on such an achingly hard topic. Well done to Peter Mullan, whose tremendous effort as the caring Consultant really paid off. Giving this film a human edge that i didn't think was possible.
