Paul Wilson’s review:
A wonderful and emotion filled comedy-drama that focuses more on the drama but with some warm hearted performances will leave you very happy. Possibly a bit weepy too.
Everyone in this is good. Gordon Levitt carries the movie very well. Your with him every step of the way and he conveys the ramifications and pure emotion of the situation. When the story begins it's final act and reality hits home his performance takes a turn for the heartbreaking and it is very well put across.
The supporting players are good as well. Anjelica Huston is the standout. while not on screen very long she's brings a very powerful performance. Rogen is fine as the best friend. Constantly trying to cheer him up he's the main source of humour and I've always liked Rogen a lot and he does a good job here. Anna Kendrick is ridiculously adorableand her interactions with Adam early on are very awkward but her heart shines through. Special mention has to go to Philip Baker Hall who has a very small role but is quite memorable.
Quite moving and with great performances it's definitely one I'd recommend. there's a good chance it will surprise you
