My Sister’s Keeper

PhotobucketPhotobucketEarnest tearjerker about a girl who, genetically created as a bone-marrow donor for her cancer stricken sister, sues her parents for the rights to her own body. Manipulative drama is emotionally involving, but it’s too superficial to properly deal with the interesting moral and ethical questions it raises. The soundtrack of light adult contemporary rock that plays every time something important happens, undermines the quiet power of every scene. And the final courtroom revelation is a cop out which negates the entire film.
