A beautiful movie with a powerful message
Verified purchase
I saw this movie as a teenager when it first came out, and it always stuck with me. Rediscovering it here on amazon years later, as a 25-year-old with a similarly progressive disability, has been quite the experience. Having had to navigate similar difficulties as I met and fell in love with my own perfectly healthy husband, it touches me in ways that no other movie ever has. The acting is brilliant and the love between the two main characters so believable, but most importantly the movie's final message is valuable, especially for anyone else out there whose relationships are thriving in the shadow of incurable illness.

A wonderful movie about the reality of the human condition.
Verified purchase
I saw this again today, after having seen it when it was first released; and, being a little older, and a little more world weary, made it even more poignant than the first time around. This isn't your average romcom; it's about us; we, as people whom often live our lives not really understanding or even seeing what our lives are really about, until someone shows you, you.

The human condition is painful, and complex, and often the reality of it is hidden by the daily BS we wade through; unthinking and blind, but Maggie is one of those rare characters that can see right through it all.

If this film doesn't make a person pause and think about thier life, and those less fortunate that are all around us, then I think there is something fundamentally wrong with them as a person.

I feel pity for those reviewers whom only gave it 1 star "waiting for something to happen" because that's probably how thier lives are, and it's only at the end credits of their lives that they will realise, too late, what this film, and thier lives, was about.

I enjoyed the connections between the characters
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the connections between the characters. Diving into how people think and react under certain scenarios. It made me laugh and cry, tut and cry again. It makes you think about how you can accomplish anything in life if you put your mind to it but what really matters the money or what your heart desires not your head. I watched it twice.

Jake Gyllenhall is very attractive, but this film bored me completely. I found it slow and dull and couldn't concentrate or make myself care what happened
