I found this movie uplifting, inspiring, and joyful.
I wasn't sure I was up to watching this movie knowing the subject matter. I was at the bedside of two of my closest women friends when they died of cancer. Well, I can truly say I found this movie uplifting, inspiring, and joyful. Timothy Dalton (Bancroft) and Anthony Edwards (Deck) are wonderful in their respective roles of the two cancer patients who decide to enjoy themselves while they still can. I enjoyed the developing friendship of the men and their relationships with the women Hazel and Maureen who they meet in Holland. Camille Coduri and Janet McTeer are believable in these strong women roles. Mr. Dalton deserves praise for his courage in taking on such an off-beat role. His performance in this heart-warming movie shows once again his versatility and talent as an actor as well as his devotion to his craft. It has been a long time since I have laughed and cried so hard in a movie.
