A truly touching story consisting of a smart, talented girl whose dreams come to a stop because it is discovered she has a rare form of throat cancer. Her family and her boyfriend John help her through every step of the way as she keeps her hopes up and continues to smile.
I watched this film not knowing it was a true story, what makes this film so powerful is everything that went into it. The story is of a girl with a rare form of cancer who fights it keeping a positive mind and body, even with a trachea tube she still sings, skates and fights to the end. The locations are Carley's home, her school, the hospital she was in and she is played by a close friend Sarah Fisher. There are no words to describe how delicately this film is executed, the director Sean Cisterna created a masterpiece, a truly wonderful execution of the life of an amazing girl. The entire cast should be proud of themselves, the family, the friends, her skating coach, it felt so real. I never knew Carley but at the end of this movie I now know I won't ever forget her. Some musicians look up to Bach or Beethoven, Boxers to Muhammed Ali, Climbers to Edmund Hilary. There's not enough words allowed in a review to say how much this movie and Carley moved me, other than I found the person to lookup to. My parents brought me into this world, Carley taught me how to live in it. Always Smile!
