Audience Reviews for The Cure

    Tear Jerkers don't come with any more powerful than cute kids getting AIDS. Joseph Mazzello and Brad Renfro made a great pair and made the characters seem real and their actions believable. The story is extremely touching and one of the first movies to really touch on the disease. While it's not perfect and it does fall under some of the cliches of the genre, it's still very good and for the most part original.

    Lovely film. Beautifully written and acted. The chemistry between all the actors was brilliant. The story had real substance to it and I found myself interested in watching it the whole time i.e. not boring. Great ending and a lovely soundtrack to accompany it all. What did this movie teach me? Friendship is the cure.

    Probably Brad Renfro's best thing that he left for us all...

    A touching story with two wonderful leads: Joseph Mazzello and the late Brad Renfro.
