Once Upon a Summer 2009

     Lisa and Andy are best friends and also cousins.  When they were kids, they were inseparable, they did everything together including getting into trouble.  They created adventures they still remember now that they are adults.  Andy faints while she is out for a run and she learns she has cancer.  There isn’t a treatment because her cancer is aggressive and has already spread to her major organs.  Lisa is going through a rough time and has filed for divorce from her husband.  She drops everything and meets with Andy to help her face her diagnosis. Andy has a young daughter and she worries about leaving her.  Lisa has a son and daughter.
     In this film there is more focus on Lisa and Andy when they were children.  They spent a lot of time with their grandparents because their parents didn’t seem to be involved with them.  In the summer, they try a lot of different activities with varying degrees of success.  3* (This movie is OK)
