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?

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 »

a heart felt real movie
2 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I feel that this movie has not gotten the credit it deserves. I saw it at the Toronto film festival and was blown away by its thoughtful plot and realism. It's character relationship is unmatched in many films I see today and its capacity to deal with cancer in a real and supportive fashion should be commended. This is a love story of our era and one that all should see.

The director was able to take a difficult subject and turn it into a light hearted, real story that allowed the audience to both feel the characters frustration, upset and sorrow as well as laugh and understand their humanity.
