Beautifully played and powerfully moving, despite the sugary clichés.

Lynne Renew and David Parker's script is based on a wonderful premise, but the resulting film is uneven, straddling adult drama and family-friendly tear-jerker without doing either well.

It's melodrama, but powerful, with insights into the way cancer changes lives. I howled. Take Kleenex.

Having begun as a well-meaning but uneven mix of medical melodrama and fraught love story with whimsical accessories, it finally locates its heartbeat.
