This film is so touching. Makes me cry every time I watch it
Fine film about a woman dying of cancer and realising that her two children will have to be brought up by their father and new young wife when she dies. Heartrendering with both leading ladies brilliant. Good to see Lloyd Bridges also.
When a woman, Tessa Bryan, learns she has cancer and it isn't cureable she must learn to find the strength to aknowledge and give her blessings to Carolyn, the new wife of her ex-husband, to help raise her children when she is gone. Tessa doesn't like Carolyn blaming her for things and her children follow suit. After she received her diagnosis she asks Carolyn to try and make a truce by going with her and the girls to see her father.
This was a heartwrenching film. The two main leads are amazing and make grow as characters, you start to see the changes in them gradually. I wasn't digging the directing though. I found moments that should have been considered touching moments, like when Tessa tells her dad about her illness, was done all wrong - the camera was too far away and she might as well have been telling him she has a UTI for all the emotion that was there. The kids and other supporting role did a good job, too.
This film wasn't what I was expecting. I was...
