Wow. You’re going to cry they said. Ha, I said, I’m a tough guy from the Bronx.
Halfway through, I knew it was a good thing I had saved my napkin from dinner. The only folks not crying were the ones made of stone!
What a beautiful story. An almost unlikely couple, it felt very familiar to me having grown up chubby and having married a gorgeous man. This one will pull at your heart strings until they snap!
I’ll always be a fan of Jim Parsons, and the acting by Ben Aldridge was perfection. And it doesn’t hurt that he is gorgeous!
Based on Michael Ausiello’s best-selling memoir “Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies,” the film is a heartwarming, funny and life-affirming story of how Michael and Kit’s relationship is transformed and deepened when one of them falls ill.
