As Matt's responsibilities as a caretaker and parent become increasingly overwhelming, the couple's best friend Dane Faucheux (Jason Segel) offers to come and help out. As Dane puts his life on hold to stay with his friends, the impact of this life-altering decision proves greater and more profound than anyone could have imagined.

    Very good film. Very touching and a realistic portrayal of a family losing a loved one in such a terrible way. Be prepared to shed a lot of tears.
  • On Point and well done!

    As a family member currently watching and experiencing a lot of these type moments, I thought the movie was beautifully directed . The pain and struggle is real, and even those of us in the background suffer in silence along with them! Dakota Johnson did a fantastic job capturing the essence of the situation as well as the other actors!

    As a cancer survivor myself I had a lot of moments when people appeared in my life that got me through each day. People who don’t get this movie haven’t lived through a wrenching situation of are you going to live or die and how it affects the people close to you!
  • Is this ALL Hollywood can come up with for ideas?

    With all the horrors, isolation and death happening in the world, every single day, is THIS the only form of entertainment that Hollywood can possibly come up with for ideas and entertainment? Seriously? My God, how much more death, depression and destruction do you people need? Why not try to come up with something that is actually funny, fun and just uplifting to make a movie about instead of this heartbreaking reality crap. People need something to look forward to, not be reminded of what reality is throwing at them with people dying... slowly. Sheez...

    So honest and bittersweet. Beautiful acting. The story will stay with me for a long time. What an achingly lovely tribute to love and friendship.
