What I liked

I liked the idea that she kept her sense of humor, albeit sarcastic most of the time. Understandable under her circumstances. I enjoyed the pot/wine scene.

What I didn't like

A few times I thought the actors were a little over the top, kind of like they were “acting” and not “being” the characters.

My overall impression

First, I loved it. I did find the subject matter heartbreaking. Cancer is always hard. This woman became her own pity party after she had pushed away everyone in her life and then realized she did need companionship to help her through her final days. After all, who wants to die alone? In so doing, she placed an ad in the paper, probably not caring who answered it. I felt that she was a testament to the fact that we all need someone.
