Kate is a classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS. Bec is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together. Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, just as Kate's marriage to Evan hits the skids, both women come to rely on what becomes an unconventional, sometimes confrontational and fiercely honest bond. As meticulous, willful Kate begins to rub off on whirlwind, spontaneous Bec - and vice versa - both women find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.

Towards the end of the movie when Kate is in the advanced stages of ALS, she is shown sitting upright in her wheelchair and speaking in a labored fashion. Patients in this condition are unable to sit upright because the muscles in their backs are no longer receiving signals from the brain. The same is true of the muscles in the throat and jaw making speech impossible. See more »

Bec: Now you gotta promise me something. I'm gonna pay you a compliment, and you just gotta lay there and take it. Thanks for the manolos, and for teaching me how to cook. But the biggest thing that I have to thank you for is that you didn't let me fuck this up. 'Cause no one in my life has ever done that for me.
Kate: [nod] Go now...

Simply Amazing
11 October 2014 | by DeviantHitmanSee all my reviews

Hilary Swank outperforms with an amazing supporting performance by Emmy Rossum. Followed by a great male lead performance for Josh Duhamel. It is a moving and insightful look into the world of an ALS patient. The evolution of their relationship throughout the main character's condition was incredible. This movie delivers an amazing and emotional message that was clearly received. From someone who suffered the loss of a family member to this disease my opinion may be a little biased but this movie gave me a peek into a world unknown to myself. This is truly a staple in the drama genre. I have not seem a home run of a movie like this in many years.
