I'm not sure what is the point of film like this. It's the usual depressing story, YES it makes you sad. The ambient , setting ,etc are all perfectly chosen. Juliane Moore is spot on for this type of part and everything added makes up for a fine film BUT I have seen this before. I have seen movies about moms that get cancer, make the whole family cry and the movie follows the rest of their life after the diagnosis. What's the point? What's the point of watching essentially the same movie year after year? There is not enough character development, the story overall falls a little short and it feels like you get dumped right in the middle of some sad story. Don't get me wrong , this is worth a watch but that's it. I'm not re- watching this one anytime soon. There's plenty of classics like this out there.
