Now Playing: You're Not You

The weekend is coming, and I have a movie recommendation for you!

After watching Mockingjay Part 1 (and you're not cried-out yet huhu), you could check out this new movie You're Not You starring Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel. (Now showing, since yesterday, November 26).

It's about a woman who was diagnosed with ALS. Yes, the same ALS from the famous ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that everybody's heard of. 

Kate is a suave, successful classical pianist just diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease). Bec is a brash college student and would-be rock singer who can barely keep her wildly chaotic affairs, romantic and otherwise, together. Yet, when Bec takes a job assisting Kate, Kate sees something special in the way Bec takes care of her. Kate and Bec find each other’s  strength through their weaknesses. 

I never really took the time to read more about ALS when the whole ice-bucket thing was going around, and this movie was what opened my mind on what it's about. I've already seen the movie, and it's really touching, at nakakaiyak siya, ok? So don't forget your retouching powder. Haha. Seriously, though. Bring a bucket.
