To put it simply, the opening third of this film is intense. Quiteintense. Campbell Scott's Vincent is a tortured young man who onlywants to live enough to prepare himself for death. Julia Roberts'Hillary is essentially her Vivian from Pretty Woman (I hope everyonewho sees this film is as unimpressed as I was with the shamelessallusion to Pretty Woman when Hillary steps off the bus in -- gasp -- ared suit), but it suits the film well. But the passionate acting fromRoberts, yes, but mostly Scott absolutely rends one's heart. WhenHillary declares that she thought "this guy was going to die," theaudience is right there with her. Scott's performance is so rare and sospecial during these opening minutes because he is not self-pitying. Heis aware of his disease, and he's trying to fight it. He's beyondemotional pain, and as he struggles through the physical pain, we startto feel it too. By the time Victor announces that his treatment isfinished and he's ready for a vacation, the audience is ready for onetoo--it's really too much to watch a character we're instantly soattracted to come so close to death so many times.

However, with the change of scenery comes a change of momentum. This isnot surprising considering how emotional the opening third of the movieis--I'm not sure any movie could sustain that degree of intensity forthe length of a feature film. Sadly though, the couple's time in thebeach house becomes, as one critic put it, a kind of music video whichfeatures long shots of "endearing" moments between the two maincharacters. I would have liked to see more *real* discussions,interactions, etc. between the two than the endless close-ups of theirpretty faces. The townsfolk are superfluous--essentially they're stockcharacters, cut-outs of real people that serve no real purpose in thefilm. Vincent D'Onofrio's Gordon is the most confusing character ofall. He seems to have some sort of flirtation with Hillary, but this isnever developed, explained, or resolved. A shame, as it could haveadded more drama to a section of the film that was sorely lacking inany sort of dramatic effect.

The ending of the movie isn't bad, but it never quite recovers themomentum of the earlier section. However, I find that no matter howmuch I dislike the middle part of the film, I keep thinking about thefilm as a whole, and really really liking it. If you're prone to it,this film will probably make you cry. If you're not interested intears, it's still worth watching because at the very least it will makeyou appreciate how lucky you are to not be going through what Vincentgoes through--not having to make the decisions or sacrifices he makeseach day.

I recommend watching it at least once and forming your own opinion.

Julia Roberts shows once again how she can take an ordinaryscriptand turn it into a worthwhile flick. This is a great movie for oneof those rainy afternoons when you don't mind a little tear here andthere.No one in Hollywood can cry and hit you right in the gut likeJulia.Along with Campbell Scott,who is dying from Leukemia, theybothgive believable performances and the music score is quite good.

My first complaint was that Vincent D'Onofrio was totally wasted inthis role, although he brought some much needed life to this role. Ifthey had fully developed Vincent'Onofrio's character then this couldhave been a beautiful and powerful triangle, but they wasted most ofthe supporting characters.

Campbell Scott was great as the young man dying of leukemia and gave ariveting performance as a young man who had never been able to fullylive his life and groping for what he considers his last chance ofhappiness before dying.

Campbell Scott also has the courage to be unlikeable and at timesarrogant rather than a plaster saint. His inability to connect andunderstand the simple friendship offered by Gordon(Vincent D'Onofrio)is almost painful to watch. He envies Gordon's easy openness and zest,and is also jealous of the way that Gordon effortlessly connects toJUlia Roberts character,Hilary.

The most poignant scene is when this young man of wealth, privilege,and education tries to relate with Gordon and Hilary who are getting akick out of answering the questions to Jeopardy. He scores big on thequestions that he studied in college, but grows more and morefrustrated as Hilary and Gordon bond over their ordinary knowledge ofTV shows-- like their singing the theme to Gilligan's Island. They arehaving fun, but Vincent can only see it as a competition.

In that moment he sees a world that he has never known and probablywill never really get, and he lashes out at both of them. Gordon ishurt and puzzled and Hilary is torn between anger and understanding.

I wish that they had had Julia telling Gordon about how the characterof Vincent was struggling with cancer, and having all three of theminteract with each other bringing more depth to their struggles--Vincent's jealousy of watching Hilary and Gordon interacting, andGordon reaching out in friendship to help his new friend. It also wouldhave given Hilary more insight into her emotions, and, when she made achoice it would have had more meaning.
