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.
Actress Sarah Fisher wore the same clothes that Carley Allison wore during the national anthem scene at the Air Canada Centre. Rather than the wardrobe team trying to recreate it, Carley's family opened up her closet and allowed Sarah to wear Carley's actual white coat. See more »
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!
