Synopsis


My Sister's Keeper
Director Nick Cassavetes collaborates with screenwriter Jeremy Leven (The Notebook) for this drama about a pair of parents who resort to unorthodox methods in order to save their young daughter's life, only to find their decision coming back to haunt them in a manner neither could have ever foreseen. Sara (Cameron Diaz) and Brian (Jason Patric) are coasting through life with their young son and daughter when tragedy threatens to tear the family apart. Suddenly, their baby girl falls ill, and her only hope for survival rests in her parents' ability to find a compatible bone marrow donor. Desperate to save their daughter's life at any cost, Sara and Brian conceive another child in hopes that the baby will be a genetic match. But that decision raises a series of moral and ethical questions that rapidly begin to erode the foundation of the once-happy couple's relationship. Incensed upon learning that she was brought into this world for the singular purpose of prolonging the life of her ailing older sister, the young girl (Abigail Breslin) ultimately decides to sue her parents for the rights to her own body. Alec Baldwin, Sofia Vassilieva, and Joan Cusack co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I watched unwillingly and left surprised

    Well balanced and well directed. I was not impressed nor discouraged by the the soundtrack or score. The acting on the other hand was fantastic. Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric stood out. generally the children in a film like this get most of the credit (and don't get me wrong they were great), but Patric and Diaz stole the show. Alec Baldwin was his usual amazing. He is so good that you don't even notice how much heart and character he brings to the films and shows he appears in. BRAVO! This movie is a tear jerker! Boy or girl you will feel the pain, loss, love and dramatic circumstances surrounding these people. I was particularly impressed with how the story was delivered. It was not what i expected. It was much better and well executed. I would love to go into more detail, but the details already do their best to spoil the show. Pick this one up and then borrow it to your friends. Replay value is low for most, but if you have had the unfortunate experiences in the film it may be therapeutic.

    Saw this movie in a college class on medical ethics. Purchased it too view at home as the emotionally charged issues had several classmates crying through it. Understanding the issues and the emotions of all involved made for a great movie. The moral and ethics questions raised are for each individual to answer for themselves.

    great movie it made me cry just like the book. the actors and actresses in this movie did an amazing job. they were so convincing. I especially enjoyed the young girl who played the girl with cancer. she really looked like a cancer patient. My heat broke because I knew people who have died from cancer and I know people who still suffer from it.
