This brilliant film travels to the depths of our humanness. It offers insight into ALS, the progressive neurodegenerative disease effecting over 20,000 people ages 40-70. The film is tender, raw and quietly roaring with the delicate message; LIVE. The only certainty is that life will keep moving forward with or without us.
The unlikely friendship of Kate and Bec portrays the vulnerability of love and acceptance. Kate has her life planned out as Bec struggles to find meaning in hers. These two women come to rely upon one another. They teach their audience how to live, how to love, and ultimately how to let go.
The wisdom of this film leaves the viewer inspired to love, to take more chances, to be dazzled by the art of living. One of my favorite lines in the movie was made by Kate, "Why is it that we want the ones that don't see us, instead of the ones that do? Kate's final wisdom to Bec is to make sure she chooses someone who sees her. Isn't that brilliant advice for all of us?
Make sure you bring your Kleenex! I was pretty much gulp sobbing by the end of the movie!
May you Sweetly Seek:)
