I generally do not get much time to watch films anymore due to working in the evenings, however when the lovely people at Warner Brothers said they were sending me a weepy film, I had to take the time out!
Now Is Good is the latest DVD starring Hollywood favourite Dakota Fanning and very easy on the eye Jeremy Irvine.
The story follows Tessa (Dakota Fanning) a strong minded teenager suffering with leukaemia in her final months before she succumbs to the cancer. Her life in this time revolves around a bucket list of things to do before she dies, including the likes of shop lifting, having sex for the first time and generally causing mischief. Her family cope in different ways and it is a lovely story of how she views her surroundings at the time and how life will be without her.
A definite weepy film and one to be watched whilst chomping on a rather large bar of chocolate! The point at which I choked up will no doubt be different to the point at which others start to feel emotional, but there is no denying this has a very strong plot.
Did I already mention Jeremy Irvine also stars in the film??!
‘Tessa is seventeen and passionate about life. Diagnosed with a terminal illness, she determines to use every moment, compiling a catalogue of what a normal teenager would experience, including losing her virginity and taking drugs. With the help of her friend Zoey, she sets the list in motion. While her family deals with fear and grief, each in their own way, Tessa explores a whole new world. Falling in love with Adam, her new neighbour, wasn’t on the list, but it proves to be the most exhilarating experience of them all.’
Now Is Good is available from Amazon in DVD +UV format – UV Format is great to share with up to 5 friends and family to use on their own computers with the use of Flixter.
