Dear John

Starring: Channing Tatum & Amanda Seyfried

While John is on leave in his hometown, he finds Savannah, a college student visiting the town. Although love was unexpected, it doesn't mean they didn't find it. With the knowledge of John having to leave for the army, their love still lives. They write letters to each other.

Until one time, Savannah doesn't write a letter anymore to John. John is very confused, why Savannah disappears. Then he comes to her house to meet her and ask why she doesn't write or even call him. Then Savannah tells John the truth, that she is married with her friend, Tim. Tim has cancer. He has a son, Alan, who suffers from autism. "Tim was sick. He was sick and he needed me. He needed me to help him with Alan, with everything. I was alone and had no idea of what I was doing. You don't think I've tried? I picked up the phone a thousand times to try to call you."

Savannah didn't plan this. She didn't know that it was gonna happen to her, but it did. She had no choice. Looking at Savannah's kindness, John forgives her and understand the situation.

Here are some shots from the movie.

My Sister's Keeper

Starring: Cameron Diaz & Abigail Breslin

"When I was a kid, my mother told me that I was a little piece of blue sky that came into this world because she and Dad loved me so much. It was only later that I realized that it wasn't exactly true. Most babied are coincidences. I mean, up in spaces you got all these souls flying around looking for bodies to live in. Then, down here on earth, two people have sex or whatever and bam, coincidence. Sure you hear all these stories about how everyone plans these perfect families but the truth is that most babies are products of drunken evenings and lack of birth control. They're accidents. Only people who have trouble making babies actually plan for them. I, on the other hand, am not a coincidence. I was engineered. Born for a particular reason. A scientist hooked up my mother's eggs and my father's sperm to make a specific combination of genes. He did it to save my sister's life. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if Kate had been healthy. I'd probably still be up in heaven or wherever waiting to be attached to a body down here on Earth. But coincidence or not, I'm here."

That was Anna said in this movie. Yes, she was born to be her sister's keeper. Her sister, Kate, has cancer. The doctor uses Anna's leukocytes, granulocytes, and bone marrows and donated them to Kate's body, just to make Kate stays alive.

But one day, Anna's suing her parents in the aim of medical emancipation. She said that she wants to live normally, just like any other girls. Her mother, Sara, gets angry, of course. She really can't believe why Anna doesn't want to help Kate anymore.

But then the truth revealed, in the court. Kate is the one who pushed Anna to do that, because she just want to die. It is hard for Sara, but then finally she can understand and let Kate go in peace.

Here are some shots from the movie. This is when Kate try to show her despair to her Mom.
