Based on a true story
24 March 2007 | by handbagshoesSee all my reviews

I'm not really into these slash wrist type movies and as a general rule, I normally tend to avoid. But this morning on True Movies 2, I was caught of guard watching this as I could not find the remote to turn the T.V over.

I must say, watching this film did give me food for thought. It is based on a true story about Susan at 14 was out of control. Her parents force her into a drug rehab program to recover. They also uncover that she is suffering from cancer, and by 15, she has met and fallen in love with Brian.

It is a very tangled and not straight forward love story, especially when Susan becomes pregnant and her cancer seems to be spreading, and her and Brian having to make difficult decisions.

It is very heartbreaking, and I must say, the acting from Mary Stuart Masterson, prompted me to look on IMDb to see who she is.

It did not cry as I have a very hard exterior, but for most this would be a tearjerker.
