50/50 (2011)

Directed by: Jonathan Levine
Country: USA

Plot: Inspired by a true story, a comedy centered on a 27-year-old guy who learns of his cancer diagnosis, and his subsequent struggle to beat the disease.
Quick comment: What the hell of a movie makes jokes about a guy with cancer? This is the first thing that comes to your head when you start watching this. But the truth is that the story flows in a natural and optimistic way and manages to be successful on both drama and comedy.
Relevant Awards: Best original screenplay and top ten independent film at the National Borad of Review, USA; Actor of the year at Hollywood Film Festival, USA.
