I'm with you a million percent. On the other hand I think it's ridiculous the efforts that some will go through to fight a terminal battle, the expense and the anguish all for a few more days. It's very personal, with political and religious influences too. Sometimes movies let you experience another PoV you strongly disagree with and their perspective changes yours. This was not one of them for me =)I saw it back in the day, and frankly, I hated it. I found it horrifying that this woman who had a young child would refuse all medical treatment for her cancer. I’ll always remember her line, “I won’t learn to walk on one leg while she’s learning to walk on two.” It came across as so selfish to me. I’m not interested in seeing that decision romanticized.
