‘Miss You Already’

fed30d767b4c005a71947fcbef4b0a5c_500x735Considering the subject matter (breast cancer), it’s not surprising the film puts you through the emotional wringer.

Two best friends since primary school must  now come to terms with the distinct possibility that their friendship may not last the full course. Director Catherine Hardwick (Twilight, Thirteen) allows the film to slip into melodrama and maudlin sentimentality a few too many times but its emotive core and humane exploration of the subject makes this (generally) forgivable.

The friendship between Milly (Toni Colette – The Sixth Sense, Muriel’s Wedding) and Jess (Drew Barrymore – He’s Just Not That Into You, Charlie’s Angels) is fresh and believable and the London locations help carry the film though it’s more unconvincing moments.
