Cameron Diaz stars on a new movie but this time, she’s not doing any comedy but a very strong drama about the life of a family with a kid who has cancer. Cameron Diaz stars as Sara Fitzgerald who is the mother of Kate Fitzgerald (Sofia Vassilieva) who suffers from Leukemia. Sara and Brian (Jason Patric) had decided to try a new procedure where they will have to have a baby that is a complete match of their daughter Kate so that she will be her donor for life.
Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin) was born and since her birth she is feeding the needs of her elder sister. Her umbilical cord had been used to gather blood needed by Kate and she then starts donating bone marrow. Soon she would have to also donate her kidney to Kate.
That’s when she decided to sue her parents so that she will have the right to decide whatever she wanted to do with her life. She hired a lawyer, Campbell Alexander starred by Alec Baldwin who helped her with the case so that she can decide for herself.
The situation tore the family apart. It is indeed a very difficult situation especially if you are the parent of a very sick child and your other daughter does not want to help her with her needs to survive anymore and yet, you know, she definitely has a point.
The ending is really sad and it’ll tear your heart apart but it is indeed amazing. The twist in the story is not shocking but definitely not expected.
