Based on the book Before I Die by Jenny Downham, Now Is Good is a touching drama about two teenagers united in the shadow of terminal illness, written and directed for the screen by Ol Parker. The script is laced with dry humour and lead actress Dakota Fanning sports a credible English accent as the plucky heroine who vows to do "as much as I can, as fast as I can" before she loses her battle with leukaemia. She also sparks a pleasing on-screen chemistry with Jeremy Irvine as the handsome and responsible beau, who just happens to move in next door with his mother.
