Summary (with Spoilers)
At the age of 23, both Elliot and Mia were unhappy. Their jobs were dead end and brought no satisfaction, Elliot was hooking up but never found the one and Mia? Well, her roommates would push her to meet someone, have sex, have fun, but she isn’t that type of girl. At that point, she had only slept with about two people compared to Elliot being over 10 since freshman year of high school.
Yet, one day they meet while waiting on a train and thanks to Elliot being persistent, he wiggles his way into her life. Not in a stalker way, but just by making himself seem interesting enough to get to know. However, before they could really start to get to know each other, Elliot learns he has Ewing Sarcoma – a type of pelvic cancer. Something that he doesn’t tell his best friend and roommate Nico, nor his parents first. Instead, on his first date with Mia, she learns. Leading her to become his rock through that, chemo, telling his parents, and so much more.
Leading to how the movie gets its title. She is there with him through it all and when he gets better, things start to erode in their relationship. Leading to the question, after everything they’ve been through, is that it? Will they be over?
Answer is? Maybe. At the end of the movie Mia does ask for a divorce since, after a month of being separated, she is trying to date and isn’t sure what can become of her and Elliot. He might have cheated, he says they only got married because of the cancer, hinting he only did because he thought he would die, so now they are in a weird place. However, with them laughing together like old times as the movie ends, they could very well reconcile.
