  8. 8. Comment<br />I think this movie has many different points of view of something very important, and also can be understood in very different ways depending on who is watching.<br />For me it was very sad but also very inspiring, the mom scarifying everything for her daughter demonstrates that the love of a mom is endless, the way Kate understood her destiny, she didn’t give up but she loved her sister so she couldn’t make her do that, she accepted that she was going to die and she was so strong going through that pain.<br />I think there are many things that we can learn with this movie but for me one of the most important is to fight for what we believe in and everything happens for a reason.<br />
