My short film review : You're Not You

"Why is it that we want the ones that don’t see us, instead of the ones who do?"

When I received an invite to see the premier of You're Not You, I really thought the film was another sappy romance story with completely unrealistic dialogue..
I didn't watch the trailer so i really had no idea what the story's about.
But yeah, You’re Not You really IS a love story, a non-romantic love story between two women, which they shared  the most intense, pure form of friendship like no other.
Before she was diagnosed with ALS (known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease that damages motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord), the successful, classical pianist Kate (Hilary Swank) used to have a perfect life, with an incredible husband Evan (Josh Duhamel), with incredible friends, a happy home indeed.

However, when ALS kicked in, her life did a 180-degree turn.
She became very weak and unable to play the piano nor hold a salad knife.
She could barely walk and needed a nanny to assist her.
Then came Bec (Emmy Rossum) and the rest is history.

There was difficulty at times understanding what kate was saying.
Thankfully Bec was there to interpret the whole time.
I just love Bec. I love Emmy Rossum.
I love this film, because you’ll get to learn a lot of remarkable things from the journey of their friendship.
You’ll witness moments of struggle, support, and hope that will make you think the importance of truly living.
A heartwarming film, you'll cry buckets.
