Living Out Loud-A Song in Her Heart ****
8 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an absolutely outstanding film with Gail O'Grady as a music teacher, who leads the typical American life with her husband and 2 children, until a diagnosis of breast cancer sets all of their lives upside down.

What makes this film so good is that it depicts the effects of the illness not only on the mother, but the ramifications to the family.

It is a time when O'Grady begins to question her values and is told to go for it with a wonderful friend that she meets at a breast cancer group.

It is also a time to reflect on her marriage and some very interesting points as well as sacrifices to be made.

This film should serve as an inspiration to all those suffering from the dreaded disease. This is the type of film that Hollywood most desperately needs.

O'Grady is phenomenal as she takes you all the way from disbelief, the chemotherapy sessions, the losing of hair and ultimate redemption as well as a new quest in life. She is literally supported by a great cast who are totally caught up in the disruption brought about in their lives.

Not only does this film tells us that it's time to smell the roses, we have to get going with our lives and dream that impossible dream.
