Trivia

Olivia says to Benjamin at one point, "Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" This is a reference to Job chapter 2. God gives all of Job's status and health in the devil's possession. His wife tells him, "Curse God and die!" Job replies, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept only good from God and never trouble?" See more »

The message is a good one but terribly delivered
3 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

This film did make me cry, but ONLY because my own child is fighting cancer.

The acting is terrible, the script is awful. They had a lot of sentences in there stating the facts of living with cancer... most were right. But it felt like they were trying to show that they had done their homework rather than evoke genuine feelings from the actors. The music was so cheesy. This was like a bad b movie without the 80's charm.

It's a shame really, because the real story it is based on, is one worth telling.
