Milly and Jess have been best friends forever. They've shared everything since they were kids - secrets, clothes, laughs, substances, boyfriends... now they are trying to be grown-ups. Milly has a high-flying job and lives in a beautiful townhouse with husband Kit and their two kids. Jess is a town planner and she and her boyfriend Jago live on a bohemian houseboat on a London canal. Their friendship is as rock solid as ever. That is until Jess struggles to have a much longed-for baby and Milly finds out she has breast cancer. How do you share that? Written by

Toni Collete gives a brilliant performance as Milly and really captivates the audience. I personally don't really cry at movies and i wasn't sobbing at the end of this film but there were tear jerker moments that i felt were done beautifully and not bashed over the head. As we know this is a film that involves cancer but its not done in a way that is a PSA for Cancer. It really shows the relationship between two best friends and just lives in general. I really liked the style that it was shot in because so many tear jerker cancer films leave you feeling bad but after this film i really wanted to go out and make more of my life which left me feeling uplifted and encouraged. Id definitely recommend this film to friends and family with and without the disease. definitely one to see and to have in a collection.
