Miss You Already (15)

Directed by Catherine Hardwicke
Starring Toni Colette, Drew Barrymore, Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine

Curious attempt to make girly comedy/ terminal illness film. Toni Colette is the flamboyant yet married with kids cancer-sufferer and her best friend Drew Barrymore is sensible but single. Unlike most weepies, Colette goes a bit wild, has a fling, and has no intention of going gracefully which is a nice change for these sort of films. However, mixing the spectre of death with riot grrl antics is not completely successful. Colette's character is quite annoyingly selfish and Barrymore a bit of a dullard. An odd but original take on a situation too many people sadly face..
