    A bit sentimental but the two child actors make this tearful and honest. It is their relationship and friendship which makes this good and the fact Kodi Smit-McPhee is a superb young actor. His underplay of the dying character is worth watching.

    Despite its grim subject, the movie sends a positive message.....Melbourne serves as a backdrop to the movie which is photograph in all of its beauty ...credible performances from Jacinda and the two children...

    Lovely movie, but quite sad at the same time. I really sobbed with Finn's passing.

    Tear jerker romance involving childhood leukemia, infidelity, and an Irish sailor in Australia. It would never have worked but for the casting of Nesbitt.

    Great actors. Ok minus movie. The ending is cliche.

    Gruesomeness of a killer disease shown through two viewpoints, of defeat and victory.

    Not matching jack but matching parents maybe... Our children are going to die so lets make love and pretend we're happy for a while... bullshit bullshit ! But the father and son relationship is worth seeing. Touring the hospital with boat shaped bed...that was a really touching scene.
