Excellent!, 22 July 2006
Author: iam95 from United States

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.
