If you've read the book, you'll probably be disappointed by this film because it's very different in many ways. The characters of Jesse (the brother) and Campbell Alexander (the lawyer) were mere token gestures in the film but were fully explored in the book and there was no mention whatsoever of Campbell's love interest, who also played a big part in the legal proceedings. And the ending?! Well, totally different. Ruined it for me.

As a film, I suppose it was fairly well done but if you have the tendency to cry at films or books, good luck at even watching it through your floods of tears. Don't wear any mascara for goodness sake!

My Sister's Keeper [DVD] [2009]

I loved the book so much that I was not sure whether I wanted to see the film - however it is excellent, extremely well acted and directed. The ending of the film was different from the book, but it was logical and didn't detract at all.

Kate is sick, and her parents have an IVF baby, Anna, as a genetic match for Kate so that Anna can donate blood, bone marrow, whatever is necessary to save her sister's life. Eventually Kate becomes sick enough that Anna is expected to donate one of her kidneys to her sister, and she turns to a lawyer to gain medical emancipation from her parents.

Truly superb acting by all. Sofia Vassilieva was splendid as Kate, and Abigail Breslin as Anna. Cameron Diaz, as a fraught mother doing her best to keep her daughter alive by any means, is totally believable - so good to see her in a more stretching role than usual. Alec Baldwin as the lawyer, with health problems of his own, was inspired.

I first watched this in the cinema, and the whole audience was totally caught up in the emotions of the characters - the only sound was quiet sniffling. Very moving and definitely worth watching again.

I was really quite disappointed with the film. I loved the book and had hoped that they would keep as true to the book as possible.

Whilst the film on it's own may have been good to watch, and there are some funny, touching and very emotional moments, I wouldn't recommend watching if you loved the book.

The ending isn't as per the book, and in my view, it completely spoilt the whole film. The ending is supposed to be a bittersweet victory...

Oh Dear, What a mess this is.

I loved the casting and esp Alec Baldwin, Abigail Breslin and Cameron Diaz.

The book is so incredibly powerful BECAUSE of the ending... WHY oh WHY did they not follow the great beginning of the film with the correct ending!!!!

Very Sad to see, such a good book vandalised like this,

I'm one of these readers that likes watching the films made from books. I think it helps my imagination boost on what I was already thinking. I do realise that changes sometimes have to be made for time reasons. This film I thought chose the right stars for this film especially (relatively) unknown children stars was inspired casting. Therefore I was really looking forward to watching it. BUT WHY OH WHY DID THEY HAVE TO CHANGE THE ENDING!! The ending in the book was far more emotional and real! For me the book is much better than the film by an enormous amount. For once I'm sorry I saw the film, & warn everyone who has the read the book and LOVED IT that the film ending isn't the same.

Very disappointed Jody Piccoult fan.

Alright, let me begin by saying this: I have read the book. And if you have also read the book, it is unlikely (not impossible but unlikely) that you will be able to enjoy the film.

*The following review contains spoilers*

If you have never read the actual book, then you can probably watch and enjoy the film, which does have touching scenes and can be considered a tear-jerker. Friends of mine who have seen this without having read the book have loved it and it has even reduced a few of them to tears.
If not for this insight, this review would have been one star.

Firstly, I just about lost it when they changed the ending of the film. In the book, there is an amazing plot twist right at the end which literally had me in tears. However, the ending to the film was predictable and boring; it's sad, yes, but it's not a clever ending.
Secondly, the character of Jesse, the older brother, was totally changed, and not for the better. This is reflected in the film, particularly in his relationship with Anna. It's truly sad what they did to the character who was so interesting in the book; he appeared one dimensional in the film, which was very disappointing.

Overall, this was a truly awful film. It was not true to the book in any way other than 'Kate's sick and Anna's helping her in a way the mother can't imagine'. The film seems to rely on that AS the plot twist, whereas the book had another shocker right at the end of the story.
So if you've read the book, don't waste your time. If you've not, you might still be able to enjoy the film - but my advice would be to read the book afterwards, and with it you will not be disappointed.

Like other reviewers, I watched this after reading the book. I have been putting off watching it for a while because I knew it would be sad, and made the mistake of finally watching it when I was feeling emotional. The storyline is emotive, and I was drawn in quickly, although some of the characters were not as developed as they could have been, and may leave people not knowing their story in the book confused, and those who do disappointed. I was not expecting to like Alec Baldwin as the lawyer, but I thought he did do a good job, although his part was not as big as it was in the book, and I would have liked to see the humour of his various made-up reasons for having a service dog.
The young actors in film were all very well played, and I particularly enjoyed the relationship Kate had with another patient.
I did spend the last 30 minutes of the film crying, although my tears stopped abruptly at the end of the film when I realised it had been changed completely from the ending of the book. This did make me angry, because it felt like the entire 'point' of the book was missing. Had this film been under another name, I would have given it 5 stars. As it is, I have given it 2 for the acting and the emotion, but in general I am disappointed by this film.
