Incredibly Moving
19 May 2009 | by krisroboneilSee all my reviews

You might think this story would be depressing, but it's really just the opposite. Don't get me wrong-I shed a few tears, but Farrah's philosophy is uplifting. It is an emotional roller-coaster, but ultimately it is life-affirming. She teaches us that every moment of life and love is precious. What an incredibly brave, and responsible act to make this movie of a persons cancer tribulation. Certainly it comes at her expense, but this is what film should be. It slaps mindless dreck in the face with it's noble purpose. Of course, having "star power" is one of the reasons why this documentary is being aired, but that's a responsible use of one's power when one has it. It really made me think about my life and how important the people in it are to me - and, how I should act more loving and tenderly towards them. Make every moment count, and don't stop fighting to survive ! Kudos to all involved in this amazing film. Robert
