Storyline

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.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Bec: I know it's not my place, because I'm not the one who has this thing, but... please don't give up.
Kate: That's the thing about giving up, you don't realize you've done it until it's to late.

Bring a box of Kleenex

I'm glad I saw this movie alone. It's kinda embarrassing for a guy to be crying at a movie.

A relationship builds between the two characters (Rossum and Swank) that goes far beyond acting. I judge a movie by how much I care about what happens to the characters. This movie did not disappoint.

At times, the movie is funny; at times, it's all you can do to not sob out loud. No spoilers here -- you'll have to let the plot build up around you.

As the closing credits roll, try to listen to the words of the song. Dry your eyes so you can see who's singing it.
