John & Becky's Movie Review of My Sister's Keeper


Becky and I went to see the new movie My Sister’s Keeper on Friday at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO.  The Fandango website at My Sister’s Keeper describes the movie as follows:

“Conceived as a marrow donor for her gravely ill sister, Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin) has undergone countless surgeries and medical procedures in her short life. Though their older daughter’s life has no doubt been prolonged, the unorthodox decision of Anna’s parents has cracked the entire family’s foundation. When Anna sues her parents for emancipation, it sets off a court case that threatens to destroy the family for good…” This Is Spinal Tap move

The Review
My Sister’s Keeper is one of the best films of the year for sure.  Don’t believe the reviews of people who say it wasn’t good because it didn’t follow the book.  It’s not a book, it’s a movie!  Apparently, they don’t know the difference, but you can never make a movie just like a book because your brain is going to view the characters differently.

As a film, this is an extraordinary movie.  It will pull on your heart strings on so many levels and make you think about issues that you haven’t thought about before.  Should we be pro-creating people to save other people’s lives for example and what are the consequences of such decisions?  At what age should children be able to make decisions concerning their own bodies?  How do you deal with a child dying of cancer and other emotional and moral issues are addressed in this touching film.

Goblin Network Ad Equilibrium dvdrip The story is amazing, the characters all have depth and you see life from each of their perspectives.  The acting is great, but this is one of those movies like Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List that you want to see on the Big Screen, but probably not more than once every 10 years. It’s just too emotional.

Some people might disagree with our review, but I don’t think there was a dry eye in the theater on Friday night with people openly sobbing.  A film that can create that kind of emotion is powerful and this is a spectacular movie that we’re definitely going to rate as a Don’t Miss It.

I think I’ve told about ten people since Friday to go and see it, so if you’re reading this you’re going to want to do the same.  If you read the book, you may not like it because you’re going to go in expecting to see the book on the screen and I don’t think you’re going to get that with this movie.  However, if you see it as a movie with a powerful story about life, death and family decisions, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
