Every once in a while, there's a movie that slaps us in the face and tells us to dump the materialism and cherish life. This is one of those movies. Being a person who has lost a family member to Cancer, this movie is intense, very powerful, and some viewers were sobbing so hard they had to leave the theater. It's a movie about family, love and the joy of taking pleasure in the little moments. Definitely a tear-jerker.
