A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
Strait-laced Rose breaks off relations with her party girl sister, Maggie, over an indiscretion involving Rose's boyfriend. The chilly atmosphere is broken with the arrival of Ella, the grandmother neither sister knew existed.
Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
Milly and Jess have been best friends forever. They've shared everything since they were kids - secrets, clothes, laughs, substances, boyfriends... now they are trying to be grown-ups. Milly has a high-flying job and lives in a beautiful townhouse with husband Kit and their two kids. Jess is a town planner and she and her boyfriend Jago live on a bohemian houseboat on a London canal. Their friendship is as rock solid as ever. That is until Jess struggles to have a much longed-for baby and Milly finds out she has breast cancer. How do you share that?Written by

Greeting my friends. I've rated this movie with an 8. It wasn't a big production, it wasn't fancy, it wasn't based on a biography (at last!), it was based on real life events something that unfortunately many of us have experienced in our own families. Great acting. Greatly approached. Good sense of humor, at the right place at the right time. Cancer is a taboo word, we are afraid to say it we are afraid to think about it and we surely do not know how to cope with it. In my opinion the film industry doesn't appreciate enough good movies like that particular one in fear of upsetting people. As far as Toni Collette is concerned she was great, one of the best female performances of her career and I believe she should have been considered for a nomination for the Oscar awards.
She and Drew Barrymore made a perfect match. Haven't seen something like that since Terms Of Endearment with Debra Winger.
