Rather than 2014's The Fault In Our Stars' charming approach to romance between two terminally ill youngsters, Now Is Good contrasts that in favor of drama and cynicism. And although there's romance in there, it's only a counterpart to the film's much, much more serious tone. Dakota Fanning gives one hell of a performance--and does an excellent British accent--and even when her character appears to be unlikable, you develop an attachment to her nonetheless because of how realistically portrayed she is. Even when it's ending is forcefully jerking the tears from your eyes, it's an overall earnest feeling of grief. It's not an excellent excerpt in analyzing terminal illness more than it is another tearjerking teen drama, but it's an overall accomplishment in entertaining at least a fair majority of its audience.
