Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
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.

... amazing work.. these are special actors at their best
These two are not just good.. they are great! You know where the story is going, and there are not any surprises. But the way these two outstanding actors portray their characters is something not to be missed. We've seen them before, but it's always more fulfilling to watch them in roles that truly stretch and show their true talent. And it's absolutely incredible how Hillary Swank, as she gets older, she becomes so much more attractive and alluring. She is without a doubt one of the most uniquely gifted talents of her generation (many generations). There are so many celebrity actors in today's world.. but when you think of her, it's not as a celebrity.. but just as one of the best at what she does, and that's wonderful for her audience.
