An Incredibly Inspirational, Labor of Love, Made-for-TV, True Story!
24 October 2013 | by (Pasto, Colombia) – See all my reviews

It's usually best to try to be objective when writing a review. This simply wasn't possible with "Living Proof". It's hard to be objective about death. My mother-in-law succumbed to cancer in February 2009. "MUST SEE" is a phrase you won't find in ANY of my reviews...until today. For those of us who have had someone dear struck down by cancer, this is one film you owe it to yourself to see. As is frequently the case with True Stories, the old "Truth IS Stranger than Fiction" adage inescapably comes to mind.

With health care a hot-button issue that's figured prominently in the news in recent months, "Living Proof" should appeal to anyone and everyone who has an interest in this pivotal issue. The central thread of the story focuses on Dr. Dennis Slamon's heroic and arduous 12 year marathon research campaign to acquire FDA approval for his tumor-shrinking drug, Hercepton. Dr. Slamon, almost single-handedly, eventually triumphs over a seemingly endless and insurmountable array of bureaucratic and administrative hurdles.

Both Living Proof's story and ensemble acting merit 10*! Considering it's made for TV origin, it is unusual to see 3 name actresses in the same film. Regina King, Swoosie Kurtz and Bernadette Peters all turn in Emmy nomination caliber performances. Harry Connick Jr., who portrays Dr. Slamon, does a commendable job, albeit not quite at the level of those mentioned.

The following comment was not researched in any way: Owing to the subject matter of this movie, I don't think it's much of a leap to assume that for many of the actors and crew involved, Living Proof was a labor of love. Of course, it is difficult to watch at times, because watching people who are inconsolable, begging for medication that is their only viable hope for staying alive, isn't easy. It brought me to tears several times. If it weren't for the "Made-For-TV" production values.(Example: Maudlin music was annoying at times) Would have gotten 10*! Overall: 9*.....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!
