A great film, but very emotional
"My Sister's Keeper" was a fabulous movie, especially since someone close to me struggled and died with cancer. The swearing is light, with infrequent uses of the words "sh*t" "b**ch" and "d*mn". A 14 year old has a steamy make-out, but she is on her porch which makes is less sexual. Though during prom night the 14 year old sleeps naked with her boyfriend, but it is because she knows she is going to die soon, and she admits to her mother they didn't have full-on sex.There are many positive messages and role models. The mother of a 14 year old with leukemia is very headstrong, but it is only because she loves her daughter so much and does not want to let her die.The leukemic and her little sister are very loving and caring towards each other. This movie gives the message of letting a person you love that is suffering, go. There is no real violence, just the girl with cancer has extreme nosebleeds and vomits up blood. In one scene she is so angry with her cancer that she dresses up gothic and throws glass bottles to break them.Keep in mind this is a very emotional film, with the main themes being death. This film is basically looking at 14 year old who has struggled with leukemia since she was 2, slowly die, and how the family reacts to it. The actors are very believable, which makes the movie all the more sad. This is a fabulous film, but a real tearjerker for anyone of any age.
