Miss You Already
This movie was about a friendship between two girls, Milly (Toni Colette) and Jess (Drew Barrymore), who met while young, and now grown up have to deal with Milly getting sick and Jesses fertility issues. There was lots to like about this movie, I liked the main actors were 40 year olds, playing 40 year olds with age appropriate husbands (handsome Dominic Cooper and Paddy Constantine). I like a good girls story, and that theirs was one that stood the test of time.
Somehow though it felt a bit flat after watching it. Much as the girls were good, I felt like they didn't really gel, that they weren't quite right as friends and I just wasn't convinced. I think for me that Toni Colette didn't convince me as an English rose, I was thinking Kiera Knightly would have been more of right actress for the role - sorry Toni.
