First And Last Love

American Dakota Fanning leads the cast in this British production about a teen terminally ill from leukemia who wants to crowd all she can in the months or maybe weeks she has remaining. Prominent on the list is that she wants to lose her virginity.

Bring some industrial strength Kleenex to the theater because you'll need it. Fanning gives a sincere and somewhat restrained performance considering the circumstances. Her parents Paddy Considine and Olivia Williams also do well.

If I was going to have a first and last love I couldn't do much better than young James Irvine who scored very big Steven Spielberg's The War Horse. He's the perfect handsome and sensitive youth that anyone would fall for. His role is a supporting one, yet you'll remember him as much as you do Fanning.

Although her British accent could have used some improvement and I suspect that she was cast so that the film could draw some dollars in the American market, Fanning is just fine in the role. You'll not soon forget her in Now Is Good.

Standard dying girl tear jerker

Tessa Scott (Dakota Fanning) is dying of leukemia. She has a to-do list before dying, one of which is to lose her virginity. Her father (Paddy Considine) is unable to give up even though she has stopped all treatment. Her mother (Olivia Williams) can't deal with her impending death to the point of avoiding her daughter. Her irresponsible friend Zoey (Kaya Scodelario) is a little too eager to party and help her do the list. New neighbor boy Adam (Jeremy Irvine) falls for her but has secrets of his own.

Director Ol Parker has written a simple tear jerker. Luckily, it's not going to be such an easy contrite premise. There are a few traditional sad moments. The romance is there. We have the inappropriate friend. The parents can't deal. The only thing isn't there is any big jokes. Dakota Fanning is doing a British accent, and I don't know if she's any good. All I can say is her acting is subdued but it's all there.

Before I Go

Now Is Good is about a young teenager from Brighton dying of leukaemia.

Luckily the film has pretty American actress Dakota Fanning playing Tessa and she is dying wonderfully on screen. Her blood count might be low, her immune system might be weakening. She still manages to go on a mini shoplifting crime spree with irresponsible best friend Zoey (Kaya Scodelario) where they end up getting caught. Tessa ends up falling in love with pretty Adam (Jeremy Irvine) who is the new neighbour. It is all part of things she wants to do before she goes.

Of course her dad is unsure of Adam, after all why would he want to hang around with a dying girl and at his age he should not be dealing with someone slowly dying of cancer.

The film, is maudlin, sentimental, life affirming and has nothing that the viewer would had seen in similarly themed young adult orientated bittersweet dramas. Fanning though is very good but the film could had done with some silly humour.
