The story of the movie was great. It kind of went back and forth between the two main characters. Sometimes you had to pause it to get back on track with where they were, etc. At the end though, it all comes together and makes sense. I love how it talked about being an organ donor, which I think is so important. We get a new body in heaven, and don’t need this shell anymore. Like I’ve told my husband, doctors and our lawyer…sign me up…my parts are not the greatest, but to someone they might mean extended life, and I’m all for that.
The actors in the movie were great. Worked really well together, and had a chemistry. Made you feel like you knew them, and could understand their story. I was impressed with that part. All in all it was a good movie. Not one I would probably show the younger crowd, but definitely one for an older family, that allows you to talk about things after it’s over. That part was great! This movie will only be in theaters on October 16, 2020. That is a Friday, so mark your calendars!!
