"My Sister's Keeper", based on the bestselling novel by Jodi Picoult , is a heart wrenching tear jerker that will both stab and touch your heart.I read this novel few years ago, then I totally became a huge fan of Jodi Picoult, otherwise, my favorite book is “Nineteen Minutes”, now im reading “Change of heart”. when I knew this novel is filmed and in theaters this summer i was so excited .
If all we are parent's loves crystallization or the products made from alcoloh or impulsive or expected. Anna is not . If her sisiter didn't get sick then she supposed not give birth on this world.She was born by assisted productive technology to safe her sister's life. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never questioned… until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister - and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable… a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life… even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less?
One of a plot let me very impressive is when Anna yell at her mother; " I’m important too, Mom. I’m important too! ". I can't stop crying and I could hardly imagine the situation if i were Anna. Mom stands up for the whole family, stands up for Kate.But the only question is who stands up for Anna?
In this story, author tried to in every one's shoes, like when dad Brain watches Anna had dinner with his colleagues,he stared at his little girl and wondered how it got from there to here,When did she start wanting to make her own decisions? Brian says to Sara, "What if she doesn't want to do it?" For Sara that is not an answer. she is painfully human as a mother outraged by the unfairness of life. She will not let go, even if costs her the love of one daughter.
Suffering Kate confesses to Anna, "I'm sorry I let them hurt you… I was supposed to protect you." Vassilleva as Kate is amazing in scene with Diaz, as she tells her Mom, "It's okay." Life goes on. Death is death. And you gotta let go. Nick Cassavetes's "My Sister's Keeper" is beautiful and moving in its simplicity as the story celebrates life, family, and power of love.
