Alvin is a cantankerous old man in a hospice facility, trying to stay amused while he faces his inevitable end. He has memories of a wife he never knew how to love. As he gets to know his roommate Kevin, a young man with terminal cancer, he begins to reconsider what he has left in life. To everyone's surprise including himself, Alvin begins to embrace his final days when he falls in love with a woman who is also dying. Written by Timothy Shary

Heartfelt and Sincere!
6 September 2011 | by brittalina84See all my reviews

This movie delivers such an amazing message about life without being predictable. So refreshing to see something that hasn't been done before yet still is so captivating. Very rare to see movies that can bond such drastic age groups of individuals and to do it in such a pure and genuine way.

I fell in love with All of the characters, you could really feel all of their emotions (both the good and the bad). This is a story that will touch home for many and is done in such a tasteful way. One of the best movies I have seen in years - recommended it to all of my friends! Absolutely fabulous!
