This is a pretty good movie about five women and their loved ones going through breast cancer. It was wonderful to see so many people with their stories in one setting. Some of the writing was uneven and the resulting short film direction was the same. The films didn't flow into each other as well as they should have, since it was attempting to be a collection of somewhat related stories. The time sequences for one section were more confusing than helpful. There were no helpful, obvious ways for viewers to get more breast cancer resources. Walgreen's and Ford are not the way to go with advertising in this topic. Also, nothing was mentioned of the areas in which there are higher incidence rates. This is important information for people to have. Perhaps it should have been made into "Eight" because one in eight women will likely have breast cancer? That way more stories could be told... I would have loved to see more, different ethnic groups included into this TV movie. This is especially true since the CDC has published rates of white women as going down and black women as going up. Hispanic women's rate is going down slightly and Asian women's is going up slightly.
