I don’t consider myself much of a movie reviewer yet. I love watching movies, I could spend my life watching movies. Just wasting time watching them over and over again. Even though My Sister’s Keeper kept me in and out of tears I’ll be adding it to the set of movies I watch over and over again.
Warner Brother’s sent me a copy of My Sister’s Keeper [Blu-ray] to review.
My Sister’s Keeper is about a girl who was conceived to save her sister with cancer. The dynamics in the family as they all fight to save her change as she gets worse. The daughter that was created to save her sister decides to sue her parents for the rights to deny any more donations to her sister.
What a heartbreaking story as the family falls apart the young girl gets worse and the son that I haven’t even mentioned yet feels completely useless. I’m in complete tears watching this. Being a mother I can’t watch movies about kids dying without crying my eyes out. My doctor didn’t want me to have a hysterectomy for just this reason, but I can’t imagine creating a child just in case.
I really love this movie.
What keeps a family together? Nick Cassavetes, the director of The Notebook and John Q, again demonstrates his sure hand with tales of deep human emotion in this inspiring film about a loving family challenged — and united – by a child’s illness. Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, Alec Baldwin and others in an exceptional cast bring sensitivity to the story of 11-year-old Anna Fitzgerald, conceived to be a donor for her leukemia-stricken sister, and who finally demands the right to control her own body. This act of free will may tear the Fitzgeralds apart. Or it may be the first step to a triumphant realization of devotion, dignity and what it means to be a family.http://www.mysisterskeepermovie.com/
