Storyline

Griffin is divorced, living in a flat in Manhattan while his sons and ex live in the family home in Westchester. He gets bad news from his oncologist: cancerous lesions have spread through his chest, and he has only a year or so to live. He audits a psychology class on death and dying at a nearby college where he chats up a woman who turns out to be an assistant dean. She's Phoenix; she smiles but keeps her distance, warming to him slowly. He tells her nothing of his situation. At his apartment a few days later, she finds a stash of books on death, dying, and terminal illness: will she put two and two together, and what will she do about it?

Did You Know?

Goofs

When the doctor is showing an X-Ray at the beginning of the scene, she puts the exam backwards, meaning the right side is on the left, thus changing the position of the heart - a mistake any med student would notice. She also says that there are several lesions in the chest, whereas the x-ray appears to be normal from the distance the viewer can see. Additionally, an x-ray is not the best exam to identify this kind of cancer, it would usually be a CT scan - an exam available in the time the story is being told. See more »

Heart warming tear jerking love story
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think most people agree the movie not getting enough credit.

Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney were great choices (and both very attractive) and had good chemistry. Griffin and Phoenix could be compared to A Walk To Remember and The Notebook.

It's one of those sad love stories that make you cry your eyes out yet your happy at the same time.

Very heart warming and touching.

Definitely worth watching.

Watch it on Lifetime and make sure to have your box of tissues and Ben & Jerrys handy =)
