Great Movie: ''Now is Good''


Ever Watched ''Now is Good?''

''Now is Good,'' a movie to be watched if you have not yet watched it, I think you should go for it.

I have a different opinion of this movie it showed me so much more about the true meaning of life.

Dakota Fanning is one of my best on my list of actresses.

Some people don't like the portrayal of Dakota Fanning being terminally ill with cancer and the way she projected her image in this movie.

A teenager going through such an experience at seventeen her whole life had been taken away from her and all she wanted from life was to fulfill her needs.

Tessa (Dakota Fanning), created her very own list to do whatever she wanted to, and to feel and know more about life itself.

Her short life made her see daily activities as adventurous instead of sitting on the couch and feeling sorry for herself as she wanted to be alive inside.

Her role played here was phenomenal.

If you watched ''A Walk to Remember'' you will have an idea of what I am talking about.

Her appearance with very short hair and of how she reacts to her life is amazing.

Dying with leukemia did not stop her from living her life with some risks.

Tessa held it all in for a long time and had to still be without one of her parents through all the symptoms.

Even though her parents were not together she felt pain for both and for herself.

The movie taught me that life has many moments and should be treated as a precious gift. Live every moment to be enjoyed and be happy with life.

It is not another Bucket list movie just to see how Tessa/Dakota fanning) deals with her life through such an ordeal makes me see how one can take in all the pain and still struggle to live.

Dakota Fanning as Tessa Scott, played her role with a great British accent and that was quite an impressive play for me. After her diagnosis with leukemia she spent four years on chemotherapy but did not continue the treatment.

The cancer was terminal and the treatment did not change much for her, so she chose to stop treatment and follow her list.

Tessa had a best friend named Zoey who liked to party and her boyfriend issues. Zoey (Kaya Scoderlario) stood by Tessa all the way and was supportive to her through all times.

The risky behaviors like shoplifting and stealing a bank card from an individual while cashing out at he ATM did get them into trouble.

Zoey got pregnant and had to focus on her life for a while.

Tessa's parents divorced and the mother did not often see Tessa. It was very painful for both parents to watch their daughter die and not being able to help out was their worst nightmare.

Tessa's dad played by (Paddy Considine)could not cope with the situation. He lived in denial. Her mother played by (Olivia Williams) did not know how to approach her daughter not living together made everything feel estranged.

Tessa's brother played by (Edgar Canham) as Cal, needed the attention of his parents but felt jealous about what was going on in most situations he felt lonely.

Adam (Jeremy Irvine) the next door neighbor had devoted his time to Tessa and drew closer as they got to know more about each other.

After the death of his dad, Adam stayed home to take care of his sick mother.

Falling in love with Tessa certainly came by surprise.

Adam promised to take care of Tessa till the end.

The relationship formed gradually with Tessa and Adam and was successful till the end.

A great meaningful quote. ''Life is a series of moments.''

Tessa just wanted to do a few things on her list before death came to her.

She wanted to lose her virginity, take drugs, and ride a motorbike and experience whatever else she could in the short time she had on earth.

The moments are precious no matter how and she made sure to have fulfilled her moments.

Tessa showed her strength and did not seek pity from any one.

She wanted to be strong for herself and for those around her.

The young American terminally ill from leukemia wanted to be in love and lose her virginity with someone she could trust and have in her short-lived life.

Her dad did not allow Adam the sleepover that Tessa wanted.

It was no problem for Tessa to still go ahead with the plan to have Adam over. He jumped in through the opened bedroom window and felt great to be with the one he so dearly loved.

  • ''Now is Good ''is not an easily forgotten movie.

I chose the movie when I saw the name of Dakota Fanning. When I started watching the movie I did not know what would be of it and that I would see it through to the end. I immediately got interested. She is an incredible actress and such an interesting individual.

Her character was extraordinary.

A teenager who had a list created after knowing her life was falling apart but did not fail to do what she knew would make her feel alive from inside.

A superb act and was so different from her other movies.

A Brighton girl dying of cancer and so little time for her list. Tessa wanted to live to see her best friend's baby but her life just moved in another direction.

I did cry at the end of this movie it made me feel really sad.

A parent never stops worrying about their child when young it is a different kind of worry and when older the worry still goes on.

In this case, Tessa was dying of cancer and her parents did not want their daughter to leave them and they worried but helplessly.

I have learned so much about life in ''Now is Good.'' It brought more light to my life. I know that worry for a child will not go away.

No matter how old your child is one will always worry or be concerned in some ways.

It is a normal instinct of parents and to love your child through all times is another part of your life that won't disappear.

Both parents were divorced and Tessa's mother did not know how to answer the doctors questions asked of Tessa's symptoms.

I felt sad for the mother she did not spend much time with her daughter and could not inform the doctor a full report of her daughter's health in the emergency room.

An emotional kind of drama and you need to watch ''Now is Good'' a great movie.

Tessa is confronted with many emotions, with anger, sadness, and some happiness.

So much of confusion and anxiousness emotions which can be uncontrollable but these emotions got to be taken into consideration when living with such an illness.

Just imagine being diagnosed with leukemia at the age of seventeen and you know your life is going to be short-lived how would that make you feel?

It is a difficult time for anyone to be in this way.

Making a bucket list sounds a nice thought and the thought of dying can be very hurtful to all loved ones. You got to treasure your memories even at your last worst moments.

A movie like this one requires a strong heart and is so difficult to take in.

Think about what your life in a series of moments. You will see that you don't need a tragedy to show you how great life can be.

When life is taken for granted you don't see who is close to you instead you see everything else that is of less importance.

It is a beautifully set movie and so much to think about.

The many moments in the movie brings all emotions to the surface.

Now is Good!

      I'm definitely gonna look this movie up. The character is so young, but on the other hand, it's surprising, too that Dakota Fanning has grown up so much. Thank you for the review and the recommendation of this film.

      Terribly sad story, and unfortunately a story that is true for many young people. Thanks for sharing your insight Devika.
