Potential Story with a Promising Beginning, Confused Screenplay and Melodramatic Conclusion (15 October 2009)
In Los Angeles, the eleven year old Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin) seeks the successful lawyer Campbell Alexander (Alec Baldwin) trying to hire him to earn medical emancipation from her mother Sara (Cameron Diaz) that wants Anna to donate her kidney to her sister. She tells the lawyer the story of her family after the discovery that her older sister Kate (Sofia Vassilieva) has had leukemia; how she was conceived by in vitro fertilization to become a donor; and the medical procedures she has been submitted since she was five years old to donate to her sister. Campbell accepts to work pro bono and the obsessed Sara decides to go to court to force Anna to help her sister.
“My Sister’s Keeper” has a potential story with a promising beginning. However, the screenplay entwines flashback of situations of Kate’s cancer sometimes in a confused way and has a melodramatic conclusion that could be shorter. The greatest problem is the shallow and unrealistic Hollywoodian approach, reducing the strength of the powerful drama, and I believe that this theme would be better explored by an independent director in a more realistic environment. The teenager Sofia Vassilieva has an awesome performance and Cameron Diaz is also great in the role of a mother that becomes obsessed to save her daughter and forgets her family. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Uma Prova de Amor” (“A Proof of Love”)
Good movie, fails the book
If you’ve read My Sister’s Keeper, you’ll be disappointed. Was the acting good? In some cases great! Kate’s character will probably get an academy nomination if not an award. Everyone did a great job as far as performances are concerned. HOWEVER,Hollywood made some big mistakes here that some of us won’t forgive them for. For the sake of time, which is money, I understand clipping portions of the story that neither make or break it. Taking away the attorney’s (Campbell Alexander) ex-girlfriend was understandable (but sad), but downplaying Jesse’s arsonist revenge against mom and dad, which highlights how angry he is at being deserted in sissy’s favor, is just plain wrong. There was too much time wasted on extended family involvement and not enough given to some of the other characters, including dad. We get the gist he’s a fireman, but his role in the book was much more important than that. And as to the ending? HOW DARE THEY? The most important message in Jodi Picoult’s story is how ironic/tragic it was that Sara worked so hard ruining Anna’s life to save Kate. She could have loved Anna to nth degree while helping Kate but wastes so much of their lives, hoping for something that appears to be impossible. Then, when she begins to see the light and time for goodbyes have come, Anna “dies” in the auto accident and becomes a kidney donor for Kate after all–allowing her to live after all–and removing Sarah’s opportunity to love Anna forever. Was it painful? Yeah! Was it a warning to all human beings who need to remember to love while you can and not take things for granted. Yeah! Did this movie deliver? No. Not for me. Was it a good movie for itself? Sure. Enjoy it. As for me (and Jodi Picoult), I’m just disappointed. Had they left the story intact and kept the “messages”, both the obvious and the more subtle intact, I think this could have been an academy award movie. As it is, I think it will just go down as good.
