There's nothing like a terminal illness for firing up a sappy romantic drama.

Fanning gives a truly impressive and memorable performance in this ... which will give Parker another dark horse in the running.

Is Now Is Good a great film? Almost certainly not. But its effectiveness is frightening. Bring whole sheaves of tissues.

Is this for you? Well, if you want to bawl your eyes out in a cinema, even though part of your brain feels it's being forced to do so, then yes.

It's subtly acted by both Fanning and Irvine, who seem to realize that the only way to work with material this potentially melodramatic is to underplay.

If you're in the mood to wallow in a good weepy, this could be the film for you.

Matthew Turner

Watchable, emotionally engaging British weepie with strong performances from a talented cast, though the script cops out on several occasions and often loses sight of its central premise.

Boasting a brilliantly prickly performance from Dakota Fanning, Now Is Good sees the terminal illness movie come of age.

[Spikes] the Nicholas Sparks-style teen Love Story plot with refreshing flashes of sex, drugs and Ellie Goulding songs.

[An] uneven but ultimately effective weepie with terrific turns from Considine and Williams, who outshine the younger cast.

You'll be in bits, but your critical faculties might weep too.

Brian Orndorf

Surprisingly harsh when it comes to the dented appeal of its lead character, the movie is a predictable drag, attempting to cozy up to its young adult literary origins in a decidedly tuneless fashion.

Eye for Film

This latest directorial outing by Ol Parker has a veneer of cancer but it's the wish-fulfilment teenage romance at its heart that is most likely to appeal to its target audience.

Fan The Fire

The problem isn't so much that Now Is Good will reduce its teenage target audience to public sniveling, but that it does so by pushing the most obvious and most sentimental buttons repeatedly, relentlessly and somewhat extravagantly.

Preteen girls will find this soppy romance unbearably romantic, but everyone else will struggle to sit through it

Why is [Dakota Fanning] living onscreen the way that so few female protagonists get to live? Because she's dying. *sigh*
