Just a Closer Walk with Thee

This movie is about cancer. Colon cancer to be exact.

I randomly found it On-Demand and now it is gone.

The story takes place in New Orleans.  Kate Hudson plays a gal-about-town, hot, ad executive.  She begins to look ashen and lose weight.  After prompting from her friends she visits a physician played by Gael Garcia Bernal.  She learns she has cancer, a rather advanced stage and aggressive form of cancer.

I won't give away the rest, although from the start you have a very clear idea of where the story is headed.

What I will say is that the last scene is one of the loveliest celebrations I can imagine.

This movie had rotten tomatoes thrown at it from every angel.  I don't care.  Watch it anyhow.  I saw it over a week ago and it has stayed with me the entire time.  And probably will for some time to come.

  1. I am weak, but Thou art strong;
    Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
    I’ll be satisfied as long
    As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
    • Just a closer walk with Thee,
      Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
      Daily walking close to Thee,
      Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
  2. Through this world of toil and snares,
    If I falter, Lord, who cares?
    Who with me my burden shares?
    None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.
  3. When my feeble life is o’er,
    Time for me will be no more;
    Guide me gently, safely o’er
    To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore.
  4. -Anonymous
