Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse star as a pair of teenagers with Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease, who meet in a hospital and fall in love.
Pam says: This is exactly what you think it’s going to be—a sappy teen love story filled with lots of forced drama. The film never really delivers unless you’re under 13 years old due to the tone of artificiality overlaying the entire story. While it is a glimpse into the non-stop issues surrounding the disease, it’s an exercise in frustration as we accurately predict everything that’s going to happen. If you’re a teen, go. If not, skip it.
Chuck says: There are no surprises in this teen weepie as it plays fast and loose where the medical facts of the story are concerned. However, the two leads are very good, Richardson in particular conveying a sense of sincerity that film doesn’t deserve. She’s been doing very good work in indies (“Columbus,” “Support the Girls”) and will hopefully find a mainstream hit that will put her in the spotlight.
