Griffin and Phoenix

What it's about:

Griffin (Dermot Mulroney) is a divorcee suffering from cancerous lesions in his chest that give him a life expectancy of less than two years. He falls in love with academic advisor Phoenix (Amanda Peet), and the pair decide to 'live life to the fullest' by fulfilling all of Griffin's childhood fantasies, from painting water towers to sneaking into movies to hopping freight trains. But a secret of Phoenix's threatens to damper the joy of their time together.

What the critics say:

"...absurdly sentimental and melodramatic..."
David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews

"[It] has all the engaging momentum of a 102-minute dirge."
Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
A terminally ill man falls in love and decides to live life to the fullest.

Mrs I watched the movie yesterday and thought it was a beautifull story. If you do not suffer from a terminal illness or have lost someone to it, you wont be able to appreciate the message of this movie, and that is to live everyday as if it is your last. Life is a precious gift and we must live it to the fullest. I enjoyed it.
