  • Melodramatic and commercial elements try their best to turn you away but this moving, provocative drama will grip your heart -- and hold it.

  • Pulling at our heartstrings, director Nick Cassavetes collaborates with The Notebook screenwriter to deliver an acutely sensitive screenplay exploring the inexplicable. Issues of morality, determination & inevitability swirl around those of life & death

    I always enjoy Hallmark movies, and I think they did an excellent job on this story. Kathy Bates is a wonderful actress, and adds a lot to this nice little movie.

    There were several parts of this story that were portrayed well, from raising awareness of the condition itself, to both view points of sufferer and family. There were times when the film could have been a little more interesting and seemed more like a made for tv type of film ? but interesting none-the-less.
