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.
The very moments that the film goes wilfully off-topic prove to be its undoing.
Matching Jack has a squirmy kind of emotional truth to it. It's funny, but it's not a comedy.
If Matching Jack were a telemovie, I'd be tempted to switch off.
Matching Jack's conclusion is a hopeful one (some may say thankfully) but it's much too tidy and rushed, a pure cookie-cutter Hollywood happy ending that betrays the realistic, at times poignant portrayal of childhood terminal illness that came before it.
While its premise is a painful one, this warm, surprisingly funny and deeply touching film never feels maudlin.
A gripping melodrama that explores a complex set of relationships amidst the intensity of deadly illness
Eliciting superb performances from her lead actors, Tass delivers a potent drama about human relationships and vulnerabilities
This is the first feature Nadia Tass has directed since Amy in 1998, and she brings great sensitivity to a moving story.
