Sometimes you just need a movie that will allow you to have a good cry. All My Life fit the bill perfectly. Back when I saw the trailer, I was wondering whether or not this would do the trick for me. Like most films these days, this one was put on Demand shortly after it’s initial cinema release. I did have to wait longer to see it, but not as much as in the past. Luckily that didn’t take away from my enjoyment.
When Jennifer Carter (Jessica Rothe) meets Solomon ‘Sol’ Chau (Harry Shum Jr.) she knows that he will change her life forever. When Sol proposes to Jenn after a whirlwind romance, the two are over the moon and cannot wait to start their lives together. But then they get some devastating news. Sol has been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer.
Jenn and Sol’s time together is running out. So their friends and families pitch in to give the couple the wedding of their dreams before it is too late.
This movie was everything that Life In A Year should have been. It had heart, it was relatable and the chemistry between Jessica Rothe and Harry Shum Jr. was very believable. Despite the sad ending, I was still rooting for them and I liked seeing their journey unfold.
I think what I loved the most about All My Life was that it is actually based on a true story. I didn’t know this fact going in, but it really made more of an impact. If you like movies based on real people and stories and are looking for something to make you weepy, then this is the one for you!
