As though life is imitating art, actor and sex-symbol, Andy Whitfield, had just become a star as the lead in the hit television series,'Spartacus,' when he is faced with his biggest personal challenge - life-threatening cancer. 'Be Here Now' is a feature documentary that follows him on his dramatic journey to cure himself. Confirmed in matching affirmative tattoos, he and his charismatic wife and their two children, commit to taking Andy's healing into their own hands and living life fully, not in the shadows of the disease. Each step tests their limits and strength of character, while revealing their tenderness, humor and determination. And, as each person goes through their own transformations, the film becomes an inspiring and universal story of courage, love and resilience.Written by
I read the reviews here before going in, not expecting the film to live up to them and leaving the cinema I thought it hadn't.
On the train home I thought it hadn't, The following few days I thought it hadn't and then I realised it was taking up all my spare brain space. I watched the midnight showing of the new star wars, even on the way home I had moved on from that. This never left, it was raw, it was emotional, even knowing the outcome you wished for it to be different. You cry for the family and because of the story and because of how they opened up their lives to show you something as personal as this. Live for the moment as you never know, if you can, go see this film!, Be Here Now!
