Katie Arneson is faking cancer. A university dance major, Katie's falsified diagnosis and counterfeit fundraising have transformed her into a campus celebrity surrounded by the supportive community she's always dreamed of: a close-knit group of friends, security in her academic pursuits, and a caring relationship with her girlfriend. Dependent upon a bursary for sick students to maintain her ruse, Katie learns the funding is in jeopardy unless she can provide copies of her medical records within the week.
Cause & Effect...
The best cinema always gets you thinking and if a film ever had the power to do that you've just found it. How you scale and share your empathy between cause and effect might reveal a lot about the way you perceive the world around you. On the one hand - she'll get what's coming to her, deceitful so and so and, on the other, what has happened to cause this young woman to behave this way. Either way, whatever your bias, I think you'll find it hard to ignore that at the centre of this is an outstanding and convincing performance from Kacey Rohl.
