There's a generic aspect to it that I found off-putting for a film that touches so many nerves, but it is wonderful to see these two actors.

Traditionally, audiences avoid movies about nice people bravely battling terminal illnesses by the millions. Can two stars this viable and magnetic erase the stigma?

Manville has to go through a kaleidoscope of moods and emotions, and every one of them is precise, fearless, and searingly real.

February 14, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Unlike most others of its kind, this one trusts us to stick with the slew of treatments that often hurt more than the disease. In its cheekily Irish way it offers a portrait of a great and enduring love under acute pressure.

The film's strength lies in the performances -- two fine actors elevating their roles from the touchingly mundane to the suddenly momentous.

Manville's gifts and accomplishments are no surprise, but she's never been better than she is here.
