Brought tears to my eyes.
19 May 2019 | by whitemanfromtowneSee all my reviews

To all of you cancer victims and survivors, I can't even begin to know or think how I would react to receiving a report like Depp received from his doctor, in this film. But I will always have a great level of respect for your courage endurance and will to live, because your community is not a place anyone wants to voluntarily be apart of, but you know how to come together in full support for each other against all odds, my hats stays off for you all. One another note, this film brought tears to my eyes, and Depp played and excellent role as a cancer victim, and in the end after watching it, you just want to thank God for being alive. I enjoyed this film very much.
