50/50

Written by a cancer survivor and based on his own experience, this comedy about a young man diagnosed with a rare and severe form of cancer is appropriately dry and modest in its humor, which gives a delicate charm to the complex and challenging road through treatment and to recovery.

50/50 focuses on the everyday realities and interactions with parents, best friends, doctors, and significant others — a fair and equal treatment of all the relationship hurdles that come with cancer. Of course, one of the film’s best qualities is the uplifting resolution, something that feels extra reassuring given how realistic the story is.
