To everyone's surprise including himself, Alvin begins to embrace his final days when he falls in love with a woman who is also dying. Written by Timothy Shary

Reach for this film!
9 May 2011 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

It's nice to see a movie with people in it who are over the age of 22 and who probably won't end up on the front page of TMZ next week on their way to rehab. This film has a mature cast who does not disappoint.

Directed by LeVar Burton (yea the reading rainbow guy) Reach for Me is the story of a man at the end of his life who finds love. I thought it inspiring to see a story with wonderful rich and real characters brought to life on film.

This film is great for any age. It will resonate with anybody who still believes in love. I'd totally recommend it to anybody who likes grounded, character driving films that are done well.
