Critic Reviews for Ways To Live Forever
A forthright and surprisingly buoyant drama about facing death before you have really lived.
The result is as sugary as a fatal toothache, though it's hard to hate a film that merely wants to give the world a hug.
The overarching sentiment of Ways to Live Forever is curiosity. Does dying hurt? How does someone live forever?
... more uplifting than sentimental, even if it never exactly feels authentic.
Audience Reviews for Ways To Live Forever
We just want to live our life the best that we can, and hope that people remember us after we're gone
I am continuously surprised by how well some child/teen dramas are made. This film addresses the extremely difficult topic of children with incurable, terminal diseases. It asks many of the big questions about life and death and reasons through them in a simplistic, childlike sort of way that is thoroughly logical from the perspective of a 12 year old. Alex Etel is a very capable child actor. I remember him from The Water Horse and he put on a wonderful performance in this film as well. The soundtrack fits the film like a glove. The cinematography is simple for the most part but it hits highs in a few very important places. The script combined with excellent performances from the cast really pull this film together. I think that it is very difficult to write a film where there has to be a ballance between life, death, hope, despair, thoughtfulness, and discovery. SUMMARY: This was a simply made film but everything about it is very solid. It was very thought-provoking for me. This isn't a huge blockbuster but for a cheeply made drama it is very good. NOTE: Shoutout to Natalia Tena (Tonks from Harry Potter)
