Movie: My sister’s keeper (2009)

My sister’s keeper” [amazon.com, itunes.de] is one of the saddest movies I have ever seen, without being depressing. Amazing performances by all actors, especially by the kids. The mother’s drivenness is the main cause of conflict in the movie, but thankfully the script (and Diaz) refrain from vilifying her. I wonder if the book the movie is based on is as good as the movie. [Source of movie cover: Amazon]
