Storyline

Robert Portman lost his job, so he can't afford sufficient alimony for his ex, caterer Julie, and their adolescent kids, model student Michael and spoiled screwup Emma. The family pulls together when Emma is diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. Cultured fisherman George Tomich offers Julie true romance, but she gives priority to Emma and refuses to burden him when she's diagnosed with breast cancer herself, which she keeps secret by postponing her treatment until Emma has celebrated her graduation. Written by KGF Vissers

Excellent Picture
16 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

The movie was realistic, inspiring, and worth every second of viewing. The characters were credible especially the mother and daughter. Anyone who has raised a teenager knows what the mother, portrayed by Marlo Thomas, was feeling. Unlike the people in the other reviews, I do not believe the mother was controlling. The daughter was cutting school regularly, dating a loser, smoking pot, acting rudely, etc. Teenagers do this, and it is not abnormal, but nevertheless, the mother had to act like a mother and not a pushover. Anyway, I loved seeing their relationship develop into a more loving and respectful one. It's too bad it took cancer for them to get there. I loved the shower scene--reminiscent of when my wife gave her very ill mother a bath. As hard as it might normally be to believe a mother and daughter get cancer at the exact same time, it is a true story and a beautiful one. Marlo Thomas did an excellent job in her role--a far cry from "That Girl." Way to go, Marlo!
