Now Is Good Trailer Online
Dakota Fanning has a bucket list

Did you watch Gus Van Sant’s winsome, terminally-ill-girl-meets-quirky-boy-and-they-fall-in-hipster-love piece Restless last year? Did you think, “This is all very well, but I’d rather it star Dakota Fanning, Jeremy Irvine from War Horse and feature lots of British accents”? You did? Then you’re in luck! Check out the trailer for Now Is Good below.

All snark aside, Good comes from Ol Parker, who wrote and directed Imagine Me & You and more recently scripted The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. The new film finds Fanning as Tessa Scott, a young woman diagnosed with terminal leukaemia, who decides to forgo any further treatment and instead seek out the things she’s always wanted to do. Among her targets is sampling drugs and losing her virginity, but along the way she also meets and falls for Adam, her new neighbour. And that really changes her outlook.

Parker has assembled a solid Brit cast to back up his leads, with Paddy Considine, Olivia Williams and Kaya Scodelario all part of the ensemble. If it manages to rise above the mawkish, too-cute stylings of Restless, it could actually be a nice little romantic weepy. Now Is Good is out on May 25.

based on the book Before I Die by Jenny Downham. I read about 3 chapters of it when I was in sixth form. it was interesting, but I wasn't into books then. now I'm a serious book worm. will have to read it before the film comes out in May. I've started my own trend of reading books before films come out, instead of vice versa so I know whether it's a good adaptation :D More
