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 »

They try to manipulate your emotions, 20 March 2011
Author: carlie1964 from Northern California

This movie COULD have been real inspiring. If you have ever lost a loved one to cancer, you will be moved to tears, even though its WAY over acted with it's emotional pulling at your heart string acting. I am a Christian, but I found myself saying out loud to my twelve year old daughter, who lost her beloved Uncle (My brother) to cancer when she was six years old, 'This is WAY too over the top". Lets look at the positive: They family unit was so strong, which you don't see very often in movies. Also, the support that the neighbors and school mates gave to the family was inspiring. I just wish I didn't feel so manipulated by this show.
