Samuel L. Jackson,
This was truly a beautiful film. It took great care and talent to be able to make five stories blend together so seamlessly into such a profoundly touching story. This film was able to span every generation and touch the soul of every viewer in a unique way. Whether you're a teenager, young adult, mother, father, sister or brother each person can relate to the bonds that are formed with each character in the film. Rasario Dawson was so incredibly poignant, perfectly vulnerable & truly touching in this film. She made her character Lili into every woman fighting the fight. Each story was directed and acted with great care to paint a beautiful, gut wrenching, vivid picture of the daily struggles each person diagnosed must endure. Five is the story of EVERY woman. It was inspiring and haunting. Truly a film that every person should experience.
