Dr. David Edwards is a cancer specialist, and his life is his work. His only friend is Lou Rosen, 73. Lou is also David's patient, but at his age, chances are grim. Still, everyone deserves a chance, or at least that's what David thought before Sonny Collins walked into his office. On paper, Sonny looked ideal for his experimental trial: early forties with an inoperable baseball-sized tumor in his lung. But his file didn't say anything about his attitude: crass, crude, and indignant. Would the doctor who's famous for giving even the most gravely ill patient a chance, turn this man away simply because he has a bad attitude? Or is there some other reason? Sometimes healing has nothing to do with medicine. Written by
Great story, great acting. Anyone who has dealt with someone with cancer can relate. And anyone who hasn't will learn a lot about the realities of dealing w/ cancer. Was eerily real. Makes you realize whats really important. Great characters, great directing. Overall a quality film. Be prepared to shed a tear or two, though. I highly recommend this film if you're in a serious mood. People aren't always who you think they are and opportunities to be close to the people who really matter are taken for granted. The main character, Sonny, learns just in time what family really means to him. Movie runs 108 minutes. The time flew by. Great story telling required a little more time than normal.
