50/50 (2011)

A comedy about facing cancer. Sure, that works, plus it's not all funny. Reminded me of the theme from Douglas Coupland's Life After God - this is the first generation (well, we are into the second by now I'm sure...) that grew up without a Christian notion of God. Without that grander meaning of life and purpose, individuals are forced to face questions of mortality alone and without context.
