Thoroughly entertaining film. Simple story line. However the characters really build on you. They are interesting. A film with a million facial expressions. Excellent portrayal of facing your demons. Definitely worth watching. The characters are more easily portrayed for the actors due to the illnesses they each carry. They are portrayed as on the extreme of each illness, each being severe. However, the balance is good, surprisingly (and with great humor) it is never too over the top and stays believable. They each struggle with the extra water they try to carry through their lives. The main three deliver a great performance, I felt attached and I must admit I needed to shed a tear.
