Editorial Reviews

With little money, a poor education and no luck when it comes to love, Hilary O'Neil (Roberts) answers a want ad and finds her whole world suddenly changed. Hired as the caretaker to a seriously ill young man (Scott), she unexpectedly discovers they have much in common, even though he is wealthy and intelligent. Their growing friendship quietly develops into a deep and powerful romance that ultimately tests the boundaries of true love.

What got me into this movie was actually the theme "I'll Never Leave You" written by Kenny G and James Newton Howard. The beautiful yet melancholy melody delineates a heart-breaking story about a wealthy young lukemia patient, Victor's (Campbell Scott) final stage of life with a surrogate nurse Hillary (Julia Roberts).
Recognized of his soon demise, Victor makes the most out of limited lifetime through teaching art and making himself happy. Woven with nurse Hillary, Victor realizes being strong and living life to the full is what really matters. The movie is filled with touching life struggle battling the disease, and also bittersweet conversations among the tormented couple.
Scenes and music are both incredible and well-matched. It will touch your soul and prompt you re-evaluate your own life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It is one to watch over and over again. If you are in the mood to laugh and cry at the same time, this is the movie for you.

"Dying Young" is one of the most beautiful love stories I have ever seen on film! The story centers around a woman (Julia Roberts) who is hired to take care of a cancer patient (Campbell Scott). When they first meet, they don't have the greatest respect for each other. Through time they both teach each other incredible things and eventually fall in love. What makes this movie so heart-breaking is Campbell Scott's refusal to continue his cancer treatment towards the end of the movie. I won't tell you what happens at the end, but believe me, you'll need plenty of kleenex - remember, crying doesn't necessarily mean a bad ending. :)
I would highly recommend this film. The characters are great, the casting is wonderful, especially the incomparable Colleen Dewhurst (Campbell Scott's real mother), and the film leaves you with a true feeling of hope and that all things are possible. Watch this film, you won't be disappointed!!!!!!!

Dyeing Young is one of my top 3 favorite movies of all time. I have seen it numerous times and still get impressed with both Julia Roberts and Campbell Scott's performance in the movie. I loved everything about it.

Initially I was a little disappointed that the story didn't go deep enough, but as time goes on, I find myself feeling very fond of the movie.
Hillary O'Neil (Julia Roberts) needs a job and a place to live, and so interviews for a live-in position taking care of a sick person in the ultra-wealthy neighborhood of Nob Hill in San Francisco. The job calls for some nursing skills, which she doesn't have. She flunks the interview. However, the young man who is sick, Victor Geddes (Campbell Scott), is secretly watching the interview. He overrides the interviewer and hires her. The job pays $400.00 a week, plus room and meals, which for Hillary is the good life.
Victor, Geddes Hillary learns, is a Phd. student in art history who has completed everything but his thesis. His thesis is about two, or several, German impressionists. He shows Hillary slides of their paintings. The artists were obsessed with the women they were painting. One of the artists, Clint, has a number of paintings of a thin woman with big, flaming red hair.
The connection between Hillary and the red head in Clint's paintings wasn't pulled off very well. We still feel like Victor hired Hillary mostly for her looks, independent of anything else. It still comes off more as a coincidence than one of the reasons he hired her.
Hillary comes from a background where she worked in Diners, parties in clubs and discos and sleeps with construction workers. Victor comes from a background that included butlers, personal assistants, never learning to drive because his family employed a full-time driver. The two have a lot to learn from each other.
She doesn't know what she got herself in for. Victor has Leukemia.

Julia Roberts played an excellent part in this unforgettable film, which touched many parts of our hearts that had never been touched before. The setting is one that will stay in my mind forever, the classical seaside summer home with the tall grass blowing from the light breeze.
This film must be viewed by everyone that is feeling as if they have nothing to live for, it will change your outlook on life and turn you in a much simpler direction that will lead to happiness instead of thoughts about Dying Young.

I find it refreshing whenever Hollywood puts out a

touching love story which involves real life situations.

Beautiful performances are given by Campbell Scott & Julia Roberts in this highly insirational film. If you think

this is just a depressing movie dealing with a man

dying, this is not so. I found that Victor, the 28 year

old man suffering from leukemia since 18, is a very

sharp educated & loving person. You really cant help

to not only like him but really pull for him as you

watch this film. It's interesting to see Julia Roberts(Hillary)

in a role where she experiences such unconditional

love for a man in his condition. He is strong yet weak

& she is naive but smart. What I took away from Dying

Young is how Victor & Hillary both share this transition of

experiencing unconditional love through such an adverse

situation. Its very inspiring for us to see how such strong love

can be such a gift. Two understanding people in love can

successfully melt all of lifes fears away by allowing it.

It has surprisingly well humorous moments so there is a nice

balance. I appreciate that this movie is not doom & gloom

by showing the human spirit can not be defeated when unconditional love is present. Victor & Hillary

help remind us to live each precious moment in our lives

to its fullest. How inspiring.
