Problem, with real life events
4 October 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have been a Susan Sarandon fan for ever. and much appreciated her skill in this MOVIE. I watched it a the untimely moment when a friend of mine is also starting her battle with cancer, which add some depth in receiving this film. Here we have to accept that people do watch movies mostly for their entertaining benefit. On the other end, with today's awareness of of facts and knowledges'availability about almost everything. One has to ask serious questions as why the true facts of the event seems to have been distorted in favour of the wrong deserving people. Quite amazing that only 7 commentaries (8 if mine is accepted), are available here. I think if I was more involved with such a case I'd ask all my friends and acquaintances to have a look at the movie and the facts and put their comments on all available relevant fora.
