I had the opportunity to preview this movie in New York City and I was very touched by the performances. It made me laugh, cry and sometimes both at the same time. I was very impressed by the actors and I thought they accurately portrayed what a family would go thru if they were losing a loved one. I think if anyone has ever had to live thru losing a loved one they will appreciate the honesty of this film. I hope it gets to theaters so others can experience this film. I especially thought Sally Field was at her best with a flawless performance. I also really enjoyed seeing Tom Cavanagh on the big screen since I was a huge fan of the TV show Ed. Ben Chaplin and Julianne Nicholson were both great and give heart to this film.
