User Review:

tsanborn79 » Great movie. I saw this at the Boston International Film Festival on 4/13 the 7th session at 10:15 and thought it was a great. It showed how difficult it can be to watch someone you love slowly pass away while there is nothing you can do to save them. The movie has a lot of literature quotes and is centered around him writing a novel in the woods while his wife accompanying him on the trip. Soon she sees him struggling to write and do every day tasks. The acting and the writing were terrific. The disease the actor portrayed was difficult and he did a spectacular job.I hope this movie gets picked up for wider distribution.
