You're Not You

When I watched the movie of You’re Not You -a story of a woman diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), I was touched on how the movie was executed. It’s not just about the progressive disease but with the storyline of the movie.

Kate who has diagnosed with ALS is a married woman and a successful classical pianist whom the life struggled with the effects of the disease. With Bec, a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together will help Kate and she changed their lives. As Bec takes the job of assisting Kate, care, compassion, understanding, patience love and especially, friendship built. They are with each other’s ups and downs and surviving life’s challenges not only with the said disease.

You’re Not You explores how two strangers can bring out the best in each other even in the midst of trials and tribulations. This movie also gives face to the much talked about ALS and will definitely make people more compassionate with victim of the said disease.

Sometimes, we should not take time on finding the remedy for incurable diseases but we should look on the brighter side of life, that is, enjoying and give thanks to The Creator for the life He has given to us.

This 103-minute movie with Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum and Joshua Duhamel will be in theaters on November 26, 2014.
