I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting much out of this film when I decided
to watch it. I'm happy to say I assumed wrong.
Dakota Fanning's depiction of Tessa was incredible, I don't care what anyone says, not all cancer patients try to be positive and brave. The fact of the matter is Tessa is a dying teenage girl, she doesn't have much time left and it's not fair, anyone that can say that a cancer patient wouldn't act the way she did obviously hasn't met terminally ill teenagers.
Paddy Considine also delivered a powerful performance, a particular scene that really got to me was when he broke down in front of Tessa crying and begging her not to die, it was amazing acting and my heart was wrenching by the end of it.
All in all the acting was superb and the story was amazing. Through out the film you have a lingering sense of hope and yet you also have a feeling of melancholy knowing that Tessa's probably not going to make it.
I highly recommend it.
