  • It's unfortunate, then, that this earnest, hard-working adaptation of the 2006 Michelle Wildgen novel... isn't a more satisfying dramatic portrayal of the disease and its impact.

  • Swank delivers an emotionally and physically committed performance that significantly elevates the sometimes mawkish material.

    Nov 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Despite offering a well-timed look at the realities of the disease, the movie clunkily eschews cinematic creativity for emotional manipulation. Inquisitive ice-bucket challengers, consider yourselves warned.

  • This well-intentioned weepie never quite rises far enough above its movie-of-the week architecture to hit all its intended emotional pressure points.

  • Despite holes in the storytelling, Ms. Swank and Ms. Rossum keep it real.

  • Nicholas Sparks didn't write You're Not You, but he might as well have, given its familiar disease-of-the-week plot filled with scenic locations and gorgeous people.
