Goofs

When Charlie's EKG is 'flat-lining' (asystole), the paramedic defibrillates him. Defibrillation only works when there is pre-existing electrical activity in the heart, if the patient doesn't have any electrical activity ('flat-lining') resuscitation it achieved with drugs and CPR. See more »

Quotes

Tess Carroll: You didn't die in that car crash, Charlie.

If I could rate it higher I would...
12 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As I watched this movie I felt like I was viewing my own life story...

In 1991 I lost my little brother to a tragic accident as well. The emotions and inability to continue "living" life felt by Charlie are the same I had struggled with for many years. I found this movie to be extremely emotional, heart felt and true to the subject at hand. The acting of ALL the actors was outstanding, as well as the camera work, editing, directing, and most of all the writing.

If you like movies with true heart and emotion I highly recommend this movie as you can tell by my rating of 10. Honestly, I would rate it even higher than that if I could.

Although my love of this movie is very much inspired by my personal attachment to the subject, I think anyone would find this movie to be very touching...
