The one thing that the movie has is an unabashedly outward sense of hope. It’s a very positive movie, which is commendable considering it’s about a girl who’s going to die before she reaches the age of normal consensual sex. Anyway, so that’s commendable. That’s a feat in itself. Hopefully they can take from it real characters that actually affected them. If they can put faith in characters for a good hour and a half, that says something.
