You’re Not You
It is always a little difficult for me to watch a movie or documentary about ALS. Not because I don’t enjoy the movie or learning something new; but because after losing so many family members and knowing that it is highly probable that I will have ALS; I just have to be in the right mindset.
So, I recently watched the movie, You’re Not You with Hillary Swank. Although the main character had ALS, I found that I really got into the storyline outside of the ALS part too.
Although they skipped over much of the character’s early progression, which I suppose they needed to for time sake, they did show how she declined and the frustration and obstacles she encountered.
Have you seen this movie? What did you think about how ALS was depicted? Did you enjoy the movie or do you avoid movies with ALS?
