Captivating and Inspirational Drama
15 July 2013 | by carloscortes19See all my reviews

I was invited to an advanced screening of this film and let me just say that it was a very well written and directed film. Going into the theater I was expecting a depressing movie but I was surprised to find that it carried an uplifting tone throughout the course of this young man's journey. The acting was pretty good, especially from the young kids (Robbie Kay, Alex Etel). The cinematography was done well and the music and sound design complimented the film pretty well. The film maintained a subtle comedic tone that was balanced well with the drama, giving the audience a chance to laugh and truly connect with the characters. The subject matter of cancer might question some people but the film has a powerful message that many people should enjoy.
