Title: My Breast
Movie Description: My Breast is the true story of Joyce Wadler (Meredith Baxter, Family Ties), a plucky, high-profile magazine writer who discovers a lump in her breast. When the lump is diagnosed as malignant, she must make the difficult decision of choosing between two surgeries: a lumpectomy or a mastectomy. Joyce’s friends rally to her side, but her selfish boyfriend, Nick (Jamey Sheridan, Law & Order: Criminal Intent), can’t bring himself to acknowledge her condition. After undergoing a lumpectomy, Joyce receives wonderful news– the cancer hasn’t spread. However, her celebration with Nick is short-lived and the two soon part. When Nick returns to rekindle their romance, Joyce decides its time to take stock of her relationships and shed her old baggage once and for all.
When I watched this movie, it was incredibly astonishing! Meredith and Jamesy looked so amazing actors, they were perfect match. This movie was true story of Joyce Wadler and her breast cancer life. That’s why I chose to watch this movie in order to support the National Breast Cancer and breast cancer patients (and survivors) this month.
While watching this movie, I could not imagine how I felt about having tough decision between lumpectomy or mastectomy if I had that. Anyway, it was pretty scary to see how my breast looked in the mirror.
Admittedly, I did burst into tear, because Joyce was emotionally frustrated and scared to see her breast gone and she changed everything in her life since she found out that she had breasts cancer… What about Nick, her boyfriend? Well, I think that Nick was a bit confused but it seemed that he could not handle a new situation and relationship with Joyce since he found out that she had a breast cancer.
Both Joyce and Nick just made their decision and restored their kind of romance but – Joyce seemed that she needed some time to rebuild her new life after she was done having surgery.
