When I see Kate Hudson’s name on a film, I expect to see a comedic performance. Be forewarned: this is not a comedy. This film is billed as a comedy that teaches you about life, and there is a touch of wry humor about it. However, at the end, all you essentially get is the depressing perspective of a young woman facing her imminent demise.
I didn’t question Hudson’s chemistry with Gael García Bernal. What I did question was how their doctor-patient relationship crossed the line into romance. The film felt unrealistic to me, with little substance to support such a serious theme. It is a pass.
