The Independent Culture

A hymn to adolescent self-absorption, Ol Parker's Now Is Good stars Dakota Fanning as a teenage girl with one of those rare strains of terminal cancer which don't make you look unhealthy.

She has a petty list of experiences she wants to tick off before her death (including shoplifting and becoming famous – nice), but most of this bland, Brighton-set comedy-drama is content to concern itself with her romance with the hunk next door (Jeremy Irvine).
