    A quietly beautiful story about life as a Baby Boomer aged couple navigating getting older together and remaining strong for each other during and after some most daunting challenges. Millennials may find it a bit tedious and hard to relate, but at the same time they may see their parents in this movie.

    The good part is, Liam. The good part stops there. The movie is slow, painfully slow, Not sure what the title is trying to say. The writing was less than average, acting, even for Liam, was overall, poor. Depressing movie, very sad, and NOT one I would recommend

    Simple in nature and because of that you're able to fully breathe in the history of this relationship and its eventual near end. Manville is just such an astonishing performer. Her role in this and "Phantom Thread" are works of subtle perfection, and not seeing Liam Neesen trying to kill people in every scene in a movie is a great change of pace. He's phenomenal.

    Not enough backstory. It was a good movie but in a world of everybody making movies about somebody getting sick and going through that plight, this movie just didn't break the mold. It was boring. I have a loved one going through this exact diagnosis and treatment currently. This story offered no big reveal nor profound moral. The acting was good but Liam Neeson will always do his part so that's not unexpected. I could have done without this one.

    I’ve got cancer. I saw this movie alone. I didn’t want my wife to see how a strong couple gets through this challenge. She offers me clinical support but virtually no emotional support. You only get half a cure if there’s no emotional support.

    Excellent performances in this realistic depiction of a couple coping with a cancer diagnosis. Really well-researched as it show us each of the agonizing steps and medical visits necessary for treatment and support.

    A very sweet story that tears at the heartstrings and makes you feel for this ordinary couple. Short, simple, and very emotional.

    We are an older couple and really connected to the characters and the story. It probably would not resonate with most young people. In a long-term relationship and middle aged or older is the target audience for this wonderful film.

    The extraordinary acting by Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville strongly carries the film. They make you believe that they actually are enduring a highly challenging medical situation. The realism from the acting and the directing almost makes the movie appear as a documentary. In addition to the well-acted emotions expressed by Lesley Manville, Liam Neeson also expresses heartfelt emotions privately and to his wife as they eventually demonstrate uplifting resilience.
