A truly moving film about patience, struggle, courage and an unstoppable, unyielding love.
23 June 2011 | by whisperinwillowzSee all my reviews

It was a wonderful touching film. It left me wanting more. I love Tom Bower and have always been a fan of his. He was true to form as always. I wanted to just reach through the screen and put my arms around both of them as they handle they're individual struggles that strengthen their love for each other so intensely. They had a love and understanding for each other that can only grow with time and patience that we all long to have and they shared it with us beautifully. The chemistry between Tom Bower and Karen Landry was brilliant. Their characters had a complete acceptance of each other and expressed an unyielding love for one another in the everyday simplicities of just being them. My heart broke being left wondering if she will be OK, knowing the possible outcome. And it screamed Bravo! when he tossed the booze down the drain using every ounce of strength he could muster to simply walk to the sink. I loved Tom's monologue to the young ones in the world who have no real idea what life is truly about just yet. And I loved the strength and grace of Karen's character as she worried more about her husband than herself and put her own fears aside to be able to give him assurance, though we know both of them are terrified of the pending bad news. As the film ends you're left with a feeling of affection for both of them, as if they are family you are genuinely concerned about and wanting to be there for. Wonderful! Powerful! Want more!
