An emotional film from life reality and the Sam is so brave
20 January 2013 | by suzyemaraSee all my reviews

I don't understand why this movie got low ratings, i see it a movie that triggers high emotions, a real family drama and the acting and cast were great. This is a story of a young boy who is dealing with cancer and in his young age is living with the fact of his disease and knowing what to expect and has a very courageous attitude , as well we see how his family and his friends are in his support. It get's us to the deep feelings of the family and the boy and i feel that this is a very good family drama movie with a lot of meaning. It is very difficult to watch your son dying and to see him more mature than the parents. It is very difficult to be strong in these difficult time. It more difficult to have a son dye in your bed and that was the dilemma of the movie for me.
