Movie Details

A career-driven woman diagnosed with ALS hires a young caregiver whose ability to bring out the best in her devastated patient more than makes up for her lack of experience in this compassionate, uplifting drama. Kate (Hilary Swank) is in the prime of her life when she learns that she is suffering from the progressive, incurable motor neuron disease. Devastated, she starts working with her husband Evan (Josh Duhamel) to seek out a full-time caregiver. In time Kate and Evan's search leads them to Bec (Emmy Rossum) a floundering young woman who didn't let her lack of experience prevent her from applying for the job. Later, as Kate begins to reawaken Bec's latent sense of purpose, Bec inspires Kate to start living life on her own terms. Jason Ritter, Ernie Hudson, Frances Fisher, and Marcia Gay Harden co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
