Movie Info

Like most inquisitive boys, 12-year old Sam wants to know about UFOs, horror movies, ghosts, and girls. Sam also has leukemia, and although the adults in his life don't want him to dwell on it, Sam wants to know everything about his disease and death, a possibility he might face. Together with his best friend, Felix, he embarks on a "scientific investigation" with questions, observations, evidence, reflections, and lists of all the things he wants to do someday -- like breaking a world record, flying in a blimp, kissing a girl for the first time, and experiencing what it's like to be a teenager. In this poignant yet ultimately uplifting tale, Sam and his family face the immensity of an uncertain future with love, humor, and a touch of the unexpected. (c) Official Site

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A forthright and surprisingly buoyant drama about facing death before you have really lived.

July 18, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5

The result is as sugary as a fatal toothache, though it's hard to hate a film that merely wants to give the world a hug.

The overarching sentiment of Ways to Live Forever is curiosity. Does dying hurt? How does someone live forever?

... more uplifting than sentimental, even if it never exactly feels authentic.
