When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
A boy, Dylan (Michael Angarano), in grade ten with terminal cancer gets a last wish from the Wish Givers Foundation. His makes a new wish which seems a little inappropriate. As his last wish he wants to be with a super model (Sunny Mabrey) for a week alone. At first Nikki (Mabrey) has pity for him but soon it turns into love. Written by
I'm overjoyed - although not surprised - that this is an indie production; Hollywood tends to make comedies or schmaltz out of the subject matter for "One Last Thing ...". _This_ movie was breathtaking in both it's simplicity and subtle complexity. Each and every "actor" .... although I prefer participant ... played their role with honesty and a genuineness that is rare. Many people, myself included, have had experience with sever illness, seemingly unreachable dreams, and the odd twists of fate that surprise us. This movie explores these events with sensitivity, humour, brutal honesty, and genuine confusion without allowing the actors (or audience) to fall into a pit of "why me" and self-pity.
This is _not_ a teen love story. This is a story about life, love, friendship, dreams, loss, hope, and the willingness to endure and _live_ life to the fullest regardless of what fate provides. It is a _MUST SEE_.
