It might help that I'm interested in cancers and medical things (at 16), but i thought that this movie was one of the best "real life" films I've seen. it helps teens who may or may not have cancer to relate and reassure you that there is hope. yes, the dialogue can be a bit, well, plain. but the reality behind the dialogue is true. would someone in this situation really be all melodramatic and happy? not normally, especially if it hits you as a shock. these teen actors take their role seriously in this film, and obviously know what they're doing.
the only part in the film that i find "unreal" is where Kirk finds out he has cancer. Just because you bang your knee isn't a reason to suspect cancer. oh well... i still think that this is a very down to earth, awesome new zealand film... even though it may make Auckland look, well, ugh. the only part that i thought made Auckland look nice was the island that becomes a hideout. i give this film a 9/10 for its realism and awesome acting :)
