My Sister's Keeper trailer online

MySistersKeeper.jpgThe trailer for My Sister's Keeper has arrived online, and it looks pretty moving. The film is the adaptation of the novel by Jodi Picoult (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com
) which tells the story of a healthy child that takes her parents to court to question the medical procedures she has been enduring in order to save her older sister's life and keep her cancer at bay and to try and get her own life back.

It's a thought provoking idea, and the trailer does just that with ladles of sentimentality as well as a good dose of seriousness. It actually looks a really interesting and possibly controversial film. Although fans of the novel will remember the Filmstalker story about the shock ending change.

So regardless of the ending, which is hinted at a little in the trailer and might not be entirely impossible to guess, the trailer for My Sister's Keeper is here and it looks pretty good.

I must admit this had me in tears by the end of the trailer, but then anything related to cancer has that effect on me since my mother died of the disease.

The film stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric as the parents with Alec Baldwin playing the lawyer who defends Abigail Breslin and Sofia Vassilieva the dying sister.

Sure the trailer does look like it's dripping with sentimentality, but hey, a family member is dying of a terrible disease, let me tell you that's how it is. However I wonder how sentimental the ending is going to turn out since they've so radically changed it from the novel.

I don't know how either is, but you'll remember that the author said:

"Having the ending changed would certainly not have been my choice. I wrote the ending very intentionally because I wanted to leave the reader with a certain message. And changing that ending changes that message. However, I am excited to see the movie and to judge it on its strengths."

You can see more of that in the previous story. In the meantime take a look at the trailer.



It'll be good to see what has been changed with regards to the ending. I think I may have to get round to buying the book. The film looks good, and I was nearly in tears by the end of the trailer!
