News & Interviews for My Sister's Keeper
Critic Reviews for My Sister's Keeper
Tearjerker that aims for rarefied feelings as well as knee-jerk, sentimental moments.
My Sister's Keeper is a committee-approved nerve-snapper that, much like its main character, has been genetically engineered to MAKE! YOU! CRY!
Strong performances, and a subtle script make director Cassavetes film one of the better tearjerkers of the year...
The film has its flaws and swims in meticulously crafted schmaltz... yet also has well-conceived tender moments hiding in the fringes.
My Sister's Keeper demands nothing less than a tidal wave of tears.
Audience Reviews for My Sister's Keeper
A very poignant look at a family dealing with a 15 year old daughter going thru leukemia treatments, and the family problems it creates along the way. A very well written movie, with many lessons to be learned for everyone. Sofia Vassilieva was awesome as the leukemia stricken teenager who handles it valiantly. Tissues required..
A very depressind and sad movie, but good performances from Diaz and the kids, but other than that this movie is depressing and very forgettable, at least to me, maybe if I had experience with someone with cancer then i would have liked it better.
One of the most heartbreaking films I have ever watched. The ending is so unexpected. It changes your views completely.
