I'd never heard of this movie and hadn't seen the reviews, so I thought I was getting a Happily-Ever-After love story. Without giving away spoilers, let me just say this isn't a movie I'd have chosen, had I known more about it.
Having said that, this was a sensitive, beautifully acted, beautifully written movie that I'm not sorry I watched. Until the very ending, I had no idea where it would ultimately land, so it hit me harder than it otherwise may have. Already grieving the loss of three close family members in real life, this movie brought me to big, ugly sobs that were both painful and cathartic.
I understand that some people felt angered by their perceived message of this movie. Without minimizing their views and with all due respect, I believe that art is subjective and its message can be, also. For me, the movie showed only respect for an intense personal battle and the amazing power of love to change a life.
This is not just a story for me, it is real life; it can be tough, but it can also be good and happy, and can be satisfying with work and struggle, same as for anyone else. Trivializing and stereotyping it with "you're better off dead" messages is ignorant, grossly inappropriate and wrong. Sorry, but we can do better that this. There are always options, and with faith and a belief in yourself by you and those around you, and with perseverance and dedication to a goal, those desires are reachable. The pathways are just different and require a shift in perceptions. And remember, no one wins by themselves. There's always help from someone. Moral: it is not romantic to quit because it's hard, but it is romantic to succeed, and in succeeding, the world is a better place.
My aunt who is paralyzed from the neck down is the strongest and most inspiring woman I have ever met. If she would have taken control into her own hands and ended her life, so many people would have missed out on the blessing it is just to know her. So many people have been impacted by her, and brought to Jesus because of it. She is not holding anyone back. For this movie to imply that those with disables do so is utterly disgusting. I am angered to even have spent the time watching it. It could have ended beautifully, with Tim choosing to live out the remainder of his life as God intended, doing the most he could with what he was given, impacting others, and sharing his life with Lou. He could have went along side her through her journey. What an amazing love story that would be about sacrificial love. Instead, it ended with him selfishly taking matters into his own hands and taking the easy way out. I know it's just a movie but this just made me realize how devastating our world is becoming, that somebody would think this is an epic romance.
