Offensive - saccharine - emotional manipulative
19 January 2015 | by HannahE85See all my reviews

This film is not one for fans of cinema who like to be afforded their own interpretation of a film, for this film SCREAMS at you from beginning to end. Everything is overt. There is not subtly - "You WILL feel THIS way" says Oscar Sharpe.

As somebody who lost their Father to cancer a long time ago, I found this film deeply offensive and emotionally manipulative, playing on the weight of cancer on all family members. This could have been interesting, but sadly it was frankly saccharine and silly.

Why this is BAFTA nominated I will never know. Good riddance to Virgin Media shorts and the hubris it bred.
