Cameron Diaz's New Role
Watch a trailer.
Ali Wentworth, Mark Consuelos and Gayle King, who saw a screening of the movie, say they still can't stop thinking about it. "It's agonizing," Gayle says. "You understand all points of view. It's so well done and so well cast."
Cameron says one of the main lessons of the movie is how one person's illness affects so many different aspects of family life. "A family needs all the components, and when one of them is taken out, all the other relationships suffer—in this case, the mother's relationship with her other children suffers, the husband and wife's relationship suffers. Everything starts to be compartmentalized and deconstructed."
Oprah calls My Sister's Keeper a three-hankie film, but Cameron says it's more than just a tearjerker. "It's just as much about celebrating life as it is about the tears," she says.
