When someone is suffering from acute neutropenia (a common low white blood count following chemotherapy), as is the stated case after Sarah is rushed to the hospital upon collapsing, she would be kept in an isolated environment and her family would not be free to just run into her room off the street and collapse onto her bed, hugging her. At the very least, they'd be gloved, gowned and masked to guard against the spread of infection to the patient. See more »

I admit to be surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. Well cast, Meg Ryan in particular.
I enjoyed the dialog, the understated humor, and the story line. The grandmother's role left me somewhat confused, not sure I understand why it was written (or played) the way that it was. However that may be it was the device to get the main character Wisconsin, or was that Michigan? Meg Ryan finally had a role that she excel in. Just the right touch of someone who is more than they seem, and not realizing that themselves. Very interesting story between she and the main character...how they reach out and touch each other, impact each other's lives. Wish the movie had been about twenty minutes longer to better develop the characters and the interaction between them...but two hour movies just aren't the norm anymore and the 100 minutes must suffice. However, it was a 100 minutes well spent.
