Went to see this movie on its first showing at the cinema with my best friend and was shocked to realise that it was only myself and my friend in the screen throughout the whole film. Possibly one of the best films I have seen for a while the acting was so true and emotional having read the book countless times before I was worried the film would not live up to the expectations but I need not have worried both me and my friend laughed, smiled and by the end were emotional blubbering wrecks we both left the cinema with puffy eyes. The actors managed to make the whole story seem so real and offered an emotional insight into the horrible disease that is leukaemia, I don't know about anyone else but this film made me appreciate life a lot and realise it is a gift to be cherished not wasted brilliant film, amazing book and as always dakota fanning did an excellent job. I recommend this film 100% guaranteed tears so take lots of tissues!

This film is such an emotional ride. I went to see it twice at the cinema and really loved it. The actors are all amazing - Dakota did a great job and her British accent is impressive. I was also impressed by Jeremy Irvine who the girls will love. It was also nice to see Kaya Scodelario from Skins who plays Dakota's best friend in the film.

Although I say it's the saddest film I've ever seen, it has lots of laughs which is great. When the film ended no one got up for their seats... Everyone was sat there in silence and most people were crying including men! This film definitely stayed with me and I could not stop thinking about it. I have never been affected so much by a film so bravo to the great writer/director Ol Parker.

Another highlight of the film is the soundtrack - Wow! Songs wise we are treated to the likes of Lana Del Rey, M83, Ellie Goulding and many others. The score is by Dustin O'Halloran is really something special and adds a lot of emotions to the scenes.

To wrap up - You will love this film if you enjoy a good tear-jerker but I would say it would be enjoyed by a varied audience.

Please don't let the storyline about a girl with a terminal illness put you off. Yes, this film is heartbreakingly sad at times, but it's sensitively made with strong performances, and has humour too. We see how Tessa's prognosis affects everyone around her - her family members, friends and her next door neighbour Adam who becomes her boyfriend - as well as Tessa herself. She tries to pack in as many experiences as she can and to help her she has a list, which includes things like driving and breaking the law, to losing her virginity. Falling in love wasn't part of her plan, but becomes the best thing of all. Eventually though it's inevitable that time is going to run out ...

Intelligent, thought-provoking and moving, the film stayed with me long after the credits rolled. I'll probably go on to read Jenny Downham's book 'Before I Die' on which this was based.

Life is full of moments ... and this incredible film is a reminder that we should all make the most of life and make time for those we care about. Highly recommended.

Dakota Fanning shows a more mature side to her acting as she stars in this romantic drama which deals with a difficult subject. She handles the role of Tessa with sensitivity and truthfulness which makes her performance more believable, her English accent is also very convincing and shows she can handle a difficult role with ease. Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations) also shows he can be romantic lead and plays Dakota Fanning's love interest very well. It is beautifully shot and shows the English landscape wonderfully. The supporting cast is also very good too, the Dad is especially well-played and plays a protective dad down to a T. Good film for a night in with your friends or other halves, just need tissues at the ready!!

Format: Blu-ray
Tessa Scott is a normal 17-year old girl living in the South of England in the coastal town of Brighton. Her slightly older pal - the gorgeous and effortlessly sexy Zoey has no problems with 'doing' her boyfriend Scott - she's just not so good at keeping what his young loins have deposited (nicely played by Kaya Scoldelario). Tessa hasn't been so naughty yet but she wants to be. She wants to have sex, swill beer, pop a few pills, hit a racist, ride a wave in Hawaii, ski down a mountain and on a boring weekday maybe even engage in a bit of shoplifting in the mall (breaking the law). The only problem with Tessa's 'bucket list' of moments is that she's running out of time because she has acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Worse Tessa couldn't stand the chemotherapy for such an aggressive cancer and has chosen to opt out - so now she desperately wants to fulfil her list ("as much as I can...as fast as I can...").

Her father and mother (a superlative combination of Paddy Considine and Olivia Williams) are separated and poles apart. Uber-responsible loving Dad cares too much - suffocating Tessa (Dakota Fanning) with his need to control every part of her life in a bid to protect her from pain - while flighty Mum can't even seem to turn up on time for a crucial hospital appointment. Her 9-year old younger brother Cal worries too in his own soppy way (a delightful Edgar Canham) "are you gonna haunt me..." But then hope arrives in the shape of a handsome and genuine English lad who literally moves in next door with his mum (Jeremy Irvine generously giving the screen and movie to Fanning).
