I absolutely loved this movie. I saw it had two stars and I don’t know why it would get anything lower than 4 stars. It was beautifully done. And as someone who who lost someone to cancer it really hit home for me. You really feel what they are going through. I would honestly allow my 10 year old to watch this. It was put together well. Lovely story line. There Was some swearing but not enough for me to care if my child heard it because this movie is so much more about the struggle of cancer. It’s raw and beautiful.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
