Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson (Millennium Entertainment)

Kate Hudson deploys her typically spirited and luminous image as long as she can in this romantic drama, since her character eventually gets the news that she's terminally ill.

In the tradition of such tales as "Dark Victory," her doctor (Gael Garcia Bernal) takes a personal interest in her, leading to unexpected developments for both of them. The impressive supporting cast includes Kathy Bates, Whoopi Goldberg, Lucy Punch ("Bad Teacher"), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"), Rosemarie DeWitt ("Rachel Getting Married") and Treat Williams. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
