Milly and Jess have been best friends forever. They've shared everything since they were kids - secrets, clothes, laughs, substances, boyfriends... now they are trying to be grown-ups. Milly has a high-flying job and lives in a beautiful townhouse with husband Kit and their two kids. Jess is a town planner and she and her boyfriend Jago live on a bohemian houseboat on a London canal. Their friendship is as rock solid as ever. That is until Jess struggles to have a much longed-for baby and Milly finds out she has breast cancer. How do you share that? Written by

Loved this film. I'm not ashamed to admit it made me cry so much. (Also laugh a lot as well!) The story of the friendship of these two characters was beautiful,sometimes hilarious, to watch. And the story of how one battles with cancer is heartbreaking, particularly in the last scenes. Toni Collette is the stand out star, giving one of the finest performances of her career so far. She gets excellent support from Drew Barrymore and the rest of the cast. Frances de la Tour has a lovely little cameo. It is beautifully shot, the scenes on the moors of Yorkshire being particularly gorgeous. I highly recommend it if you want a heartfelt and moving cinema experience.
