Storyline

Follows David as he moves back home to be with his mother for the year between her giving up her fight against cancer and slowly dying. Davids relationship with his family is, at best, strained (especially in regard to his father) because of an apparent difficulty in accepting his homosexuality. Although the subject matter is genuinely distressing, his mothers death ultimately helps restore his familial bonds and become an integrated part of the family unit again.

Cant understand why this isn't 9/10 amazing film.
5 February 2017 | by comedy_chrisSee all my reviews

maybe its because he is gay and people are idiots, i dunno but the main theme of this film is cancer, family, and living what time is left... i never cry and never leave reviews but this film had me crying with laughter and then 20 minutes later sobbing my heart out... if you watch one film this month please let it be this one...

the acting is amazing, its one of those films that you forget is even pretend, i was fully fully invested in each character and it was beautifully shot, great soundtrack and written perfectly. an almost perfect film.

as i said i never leave reviews but this deserves it. just watch the trailer and i swear you will download this movie... great job to all involved... spectacular.
