Five 2011


     This film consists of five stores of lives impacted by breast cancer.  Charlotte has to say goodbye to her young daughter.  Mia thinks she is going to die so she makes a lot of choices she later regrets.  Cheyanne see the life she is living vanish.  Lili doesn’t want her mother and her sister to be there for her surgical procedure.  Pearl is an oncologist and she finds herself in the same situation her patients are facing.
     I liked this film and also the way some of the stories connect together.  Just the word ‘cancer’ is very scary!!  This is a positive film with a lot of information too.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)
