This week I went to watch a new film, 50/50, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a young man called Adam who is diagnosed with serious cancer of the spine and given a 50% chance of survival. It is a story based upon the true life experiences of writer Will Reiser, a good friend of Seth Rogen who plays Adam's best friend in the film.
I was a little worried that the film would be upsetting, and it was. But along with the harrowing moments of watching Adam struggle with his illness there are moments of laughter and comedy too. Overall it's a story about friendship and survival through tough times. I thought the acting was really good and I would really recommend it. Has anyone else seen it yet? What did you think?
