Tragedy becomes a comedy
Jimmy Buffet once said that tragedies often become comedies and they better become comedies real fast or we are in a lot of trouble.
This smart film moves from the tragic into something more. Taylor Darcy is in the prime of his life when he is diagnosed with prostate cancer, the same disease that killed his father.
Thinking that he is going to die, he burns every bridge that he ever crossed. Only one friend stands with him as he goes in to the cancer ward for treatment.
There he meets a leukemia patient named Lynn. Although the film doesn't sound funny and obviously, the terminally ill are no laughing matter, comedy is the best form of medicine in this heart warming story about love and survival.
A can't miss in the inde genre.
