Kate is a classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS. Bec is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together. Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, just as Kate's marriage to Evan hits the skids, both women come to rely on what becomes an unconventional, sometimes confrontational and fiercely honest bond. As meticulous, willful Kate begins to rub off on whirlwind, spontaneous Bec - and vice versa - both women find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.

Towards the end of the movie when Kate is in the advanced stages of ALS, she is shown sitting upright in her wheelchair and speaking in a labored fashion. Patients in this condition are unable to sit upright because the muscles in their backs are no longer receiving signals from the brain. The same is true of the muscles in the throat and jaw making speech impossible. See more »

Warning: This is absolutely brilliant but be prepared, it'll make you cry your eyes out..
I don't mean any disrespect to anyone but to be honest, when I settled down to watch this film, neither did I expect it to be this good, nor had any idea what a moving and poignant experience it would turn out to be so I was completely caught off guard when it made the tears pour from my eyes uncontrollably so this is your warning: Keep a box of tissues within easy reach because you'll definitely need it (Yes, the whole box :).. What I loved about this movie the most is Hilary Swank's and Emmy Rossum's exquisite performances which made every emotion experienced throughout the movie feel truly genuine, without being the least bit cheap or unpleasant.. Also, plenty of cheerful, happy, wonderful scenes manage to keep you smiling, too, while tears roll down your cheeks, simply amazing.. If you're someone who still hasn't heard of or doesn't know anything about ALS and decide to watch this film, with her excellent performance as an ALS-stricken pianist, Hilary Swank will make sure you now know about this devastating disease and want to learn about it even more after you're done watching the film and you'll be even more fascinated by her performance when you realise how accurate her depiction of the symptoms is.. Although Emmy Rossum's character, Bec -a college drop-out, full-time assistant to Hilary Swank's Kate- felt quite a bit as if she walked right off the Shameless set onto this one, she was nevertheless absolutely brilliant, and even gave us a really wonderful surprise at the end (Make sure you keep watching when the closing credits start to roll..You're in for a really pleasant treat ;).. Not having seen him in many things, Josh Duhamel also surprised me with his noticeable performance as Kate's "a little impatient and helpless at first, then comes to his senses" husband, gave me the impression I'll enjoy seeing him in movies more and more.. If you don't mind watching films through your tears, while feeling multiple emotions at the same time, then I'd really recommend this film. A truly rewarding experience, really worth your while, with plenty to learn from..
