Movie Preview: My Sister's Keeper

Movie Preview: My Sister's Keeper


Well, after a bit of casting drama and some commotion over the fact that the film's ending will differ from the book's, we're finally getting a real glimpse of My Sister's Keeper. The story follows a family in which one teenage daughter is very ill while the other one, learning a difficult truth about her birth, tries to become emancipated from her parents. There is, of course, much more going on in this layered, heavy family drama, and from this new trailer it looks like the film captures the intensity of the story quite well.

Only thing is, I was never a supporter of Cameron Diaz playing the role of the mother and I have to say the trailer isn't changing this opinion. I'll try to go in with an open mind when the movie opens June 26, but at the moment I can't shake the thought that this was a dreadful miscast. To check out the trailer for yourself,

I will not see this movie. I read the book, cried from start to finish - one of those books I started in the afternoon and read til 3 in the morning. I don't want to see the movie because I don't think Cameron is right and I don't want to ruin what I've read. Having said that, though, I did get tears watching the trailer and Abigail Breslin looks like she's perfectly cast for this role.

Yeah, Cameron Diaz is wrong for the role. Such a shame. I love the girl from Medium. Getting rid of the Fanning sisters was a good move. Bad move was keeping Diaz.

I definitely want to see this! But I'm going to try to read the book first because I always prefer to.

LolaSvelte--agreed. I thought I was the only person that felt that way about Piccoult's books. I didn't care much for this book, so I probably won't see this movie.

starangel82 - Where do you live that a movie ticket is $8?! I'm so jealous, here in NY it's up to $12 already. My Sister's Keeper was one of my favorite books, so I'm on the fence about seeing the movie version.

I'll see it 'cause I loved the book. Idk how they'd change the ending, although the book ending demonstrated really bad writing... not a fan of Cameron Diaz but I'll give it a chance.

Wow, that's some strong tobacco... I wanna see it, but I'll have to be in the right mood to actually not fall into depression.

I cant wait to see this movie. I think this is the type of role Cameron Diaz needs to change from only comedy roles. I'm excited to see her in it. And Abagail Breslin is so adorable and I think she's going to be great in this movie.
