Stella Grant is every bit a seventeen-year-old. She's attached to her laptop and loves her best friends. But unlike most teenagers, she spends much of her time living in a hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control, all of which is put to the test when she meets an impossibly charming fellow patient named Will Newman.

A romantic tragedy about individuals dealing with Cystic Fibrous. A real moving movie with a more realistic ending. Not your Cinderella ending. I enjoyed the movie.

Boring for most of the movie, with actors that had no chemistry. The movie doesn't even lead well to HOW the characters fall in love, it seems like it goes from the girl not liking him to suddenly in LOVE with him in one second. They say they 'love' each other but nothing to prove that at all.
Did get better towards the end and pulled on heart strings. But just an empty shell of a movie with nothing to take away. Skip it and watch something better.

If you think this movie is just a tear-jerker, pandering to your emotions, ....well, then you would be 100% correct. Better than most, but it certainly makes CF look alot easier and more hopeful than it is in reality.

If I'm being totally honest, I enjoyed the book more. I was able to engage a lot more with the characters, and, unlike in the movie, I was able to see what they were like in a lot more depth, especially Will. The movie, compared to the book was just boring. The book, however, had me sobbing in my room as I read. I was pretty disappointed because I was kind of hoping that /just this once/ the movie would be better than the book since it was written based off of the film, but now that I've read and watched both, and the universal truth that the book is better than the movie still rings true. Cole Sprouse still slaps though.

This filmmaker really maximized the 16x9 ratio screen! If you zoom in, even a little, both main characters are off the edges of the screen. You can hear them talking, but both are all the way off both left and right edges of the screen. Five Feet Apart.
If you are reading this, I hope your screen can display 16x9.
Me, I had to hit the rewind button, reset the screen, then rewatch a few scenes.

I'm not a fan of copycats but I'll let this one pass. Very much like like The Fault in our Stars, same emotions but with a different ending.

The tendency now is for teen not to wait but when you have a disease that will kill you. Then you make choices that are not sound.

I thought that this was one of my favorite all-time films! Yes, I saw the flaws, but the film was very touching. I really liked the story line and i felt that the screenplay was particularly well written. The acting was solid. I would have preferred a different ending, but what was written was more realistic. I feel that this is a "Must See" for those who favor romantic movies.

A bunch of terminally ill teens living in hospital with perfect wooden floors, partying in its corridors and making medical decisions about their bodies without any parents in sight (sigh). Breaking the rules, exchanging germs, absolutely lame CPR that would not save anyone, Resurrection, weird lines...oh I switched it off. Do yourself a favor and do not watch this one - waste of time.

Mundane, dull and insipid movie that I found unwatchable. Like watching paint dry, a real thrill a minute.
