Trivia

Two days of filming were spent in a green screen studio. These scenes were later scrapped and filmed in real location as "it would have taken us longer to CGI these scenes into something realistic than the rest of the film took to make. Probably would have cost more too!" See more »

Witty and poignant film
23 April 2017 | by clarkepittsSee all my reviews

A comedy about cancer might seem unappealing but this is a warm and charming story well told.

The leading lady presents a star turn, if you're not moved by the scene in the car, there's something amiss.

I hope this film gets the wider audience it deserves.
