Natalie Bosman quote iconA moving film that will touch those who have experienced similar life-altering turmoil and leave the rest utterly humbled regarding the brevity of life and its power to change in an instant.

Tomatometer quote iconMy Sister's Keeper gets fine performances from its adult and child actors, but the director's heavy-handed approach turns a worthy emotional subject into an overly melodramatic tearjerker.
