Editorial Reviews

Blu-Ray pressing. What keeps a family together? Nick Cassavetes, the director of The Notebook and John Q, again demonstrates his sure hand with tales of deep human emotion in this inspiring film about a loving family challenged - and united - by a child's illness. Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, Alec Baldwin and others in an exceptional cast bring sensitivity to the story of 11-year-old Anna Fitzgerald, conceived to be a donor for her leukemia-stricken sister, and who finally demands the right to control her own body. This act of free will may tear the Fitzgeralds apart. Or it may be the first step to a triumphant realization of devotion, dignity and what it means to be a family.

My Sister's Keeper really hit home for me as an adult child from a family in which someone had serious ongoing health problems, a former social worker and as a cancer survivor who beat an advanced form of the disease against some mighty big odds. The casting was very well done; the cinematography and the choreography enhance the quality of the picture. The acting was very convincing, too. The plot moves along at a good pace for the first half-hour or so but after that things do slow down; they could have cut a few minutes once or twice to truly make this a taut drama. That is a disappointment.

When the action starts, we meet the members of the Fitzgerald family who endure endless emotional angst and suffering because tragically one of the Fitzgerald children, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva) is very ill with cancer--yet again. Now that Kate's kidneys have failed her; Kate's life is in immediate jeopardy. We also meet Kate's sister Anna (Abigail Breslin) who was a tube baby created for the purpose of contributing one thing or another from her own body to save Kate's life repeatedly throughout the years. Cameron Diaz plays Sara Fitzgerald, a mother who bravely scraps her lucrative career as a lawyer to take care of her daughter Kate at any cost and there's Kate's father Brian (Jason Patric).

Although Anna has given blood, bone marrow and more in the past to keep her sister Kate alive, all of a sudden Anna throws the family into complete turmoil when she hires crackerjack lawyer Campbell Alexander (Alec Baldwin) to win medical emancipation from her parents. Sara and Brian are stunned, to say the least; Sara is furious with Anna, too. The ensuing court scenes with Judge De Salvo (Joan Cusack) are quite memorable.

I came in expecting a sappy melodrama and came out clutching a tear-stained movie theater napkin. "My Sister's Keeper" is a beautiful, heartfelt story that's ambitious enough to be about more than a teenager sick with cancer; it presents us with a series of moral issues that have no easy solutions. We do expect to laugh and cry (mostly the latter), but we don't expect to think--at least, not as deeply as this. Of all the issues presented in this film, the main one is an eleven-year-old girl who was engineered rather than conceived. She's a perfect genetic match to her older sister, who suffers from a rare form of leukemia and often needs spare quantities of blood, marrow, and organs to keep her alive. The younger sister believes she has rights to her own body and subsequently sues her parents. In legal terms, she files a suit to be medically emancipated.

Her name is Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin), who by all accounts would be a normal girl were it not for the fact that her sister, Kate (Sophia Vassilieva), is slipping further and further away. Their mother, Sara (Cameron Diaz), handles the situation as best she can, having given up her career as a lawyer to spend all her time at home. Naturally, she only thinks about keeping her daughter alive, which is why she has no qualms about using her other daughter's body for spare parts. She feels, quite understandably, that subjecting Anna to medical procedures isn't as hard as the thought of burying Kate. But in all those years, did she ever ask Anna how she feels about her role? Does the fact that she's a minor mean she doesn't have a say in this? Hoping to convince her parents that she does, she appeals to Campbell Alexander (Alec Baldwin), a defense attorney with a 91% success rate.

Format: DVD
The best part of this story (the book) was the surprise ending--which was completely changed in the movie. SPOILER ALERT! In the book the younger sister got her medical emancipation. She was then in a car accident and her sister with cancer ended up getting her kidney (thanks to her attorney, now responsible for her medical decisions). The older sister ended up surviving and the younger sister did not. Why do they insist on changing good stories in Hollywood?????

I will not rehash the story line as the summary, sums it up and if you need further info, google it.

I watched this movie for the first time two years ago, three days after my preteen cousin died of cancer. Five days after my grandmother died of complications of a fall and was dieing of cancer. Both of them died within two months of being told they had at least six months. I find it ironic my sisters and I chose to watch this movie at the time. But then again in hind sight, watching a movie about a young girl dying of cancer was like talking to someone who knew what it was like without saying anything.

Watching it again two years latter only reaffirms my love and belief of the film. I read a number of negative and positive reviews. The honest truth is until you have lived that experience can you understand how complicated the situation is. And my opinion is that the script and actors handled the complex emotions extremely well. For all the negative reviewers who said Sara Fitzgerald played by Cameron Diaz, came off as a "heartless bitch" dose not understand that she was playing a desperate mother trying to save her child and was unwilling to stop fighting to save her life. I rate her performance as excellent. Having all the nuances of being partially neurotic, desperate and in denial. The film showed many truths, and showed perfectly how people hold strong and fall apart all at the same time.

Again, I have not yet read the book. But I feel that all of the characters and the script were handled incredibly well. The movie gives you a complete and complex picture of how a family falls apart and comes together again. How younger siblings can bind together stronger that what is expected. How parents can accept the death of a child who accepts death first.
