‘Five Feet Apart’ is the debut movie directed by Justin Baldoni. Its a beautiful exploration of what it means to be living with a chronic illness. It was inspired by real stories and thoughts of those living with cystic fibrosis. Justin’s hope for the movie was to shine light on the views of the dying in understanding how to better live.
I’ve been thinking of mortality more as I get older. I love movies like this for firstly opening the conversation around this difficult but important topic but also for content thats meaningful and hopeful. What would you do differently if you had a chronic illness? Are you taking time and moments for granted?
