Loved this movie
4 November 2012 | by kpmjdjdSee all my reviews

I loved this movie. The characters blended humor with the grief and sadness of losing their mother. Sally Field was excellent. She put aside any vanity and let herself be seen as a person dying would look. Her emotions and her portrayal of the loss was very good. I thought the writing brought out the rivalry and the bond between the "kids" very realistically. They all grew through the process of helping their mother die and helping each other through it. While there were some thin areas - specifically the role of the step-father and why he seemed so distant, most of the characters were well rounded. I don't remember this movie being in the theaters in 2006. Too often Hollywood goes for the big shoot-em-ups and CG movies instead of portraying real people going through real life situations. I would like to see more like this movie.
