    Having had some quite raw experiences with cancer in my life, I have put off seeing this film for over a year. I couldn't really comprehend wanting to watch something of this subject matter for entertainment, when I spend alot of my life trying to deal with or bury feelings and hurt around it.

    The film is incredible however. It never veers into the schmaltz that it so easily could, instead portraying a gruelling but heartwarming portrayal of experiencing cancer…

    Before I even start this, I have to caveat with the fact that I am a HUGE fan of The Hobbit.

From the characters to the locations to the dialogue and costumes, everything is just a (slightly gory) love letter for anyone who's grown up going on family holidays in the UK.
