Now Is Good

Synopsis

A girl dying of leukemia compiles a list of things she'd like to do before passing away. Topping the list is her desire to lose her virginity.
Now Is Good tells the bracing story of Tessa (Fanning), a seventeen year-old girl passionate about life who is suffering from leukaemia. With limited time to live, she takes the challenge of living her adolescence in fast-forward and compiles a catalogue of what she feels every teenager should experience, losing her virginity being one. With the help of best friend Zoey (Scodelario), she sets the list in motion. While her family deals with fear and grief, each in their own way, Tessa explores a whole new world and discovers the feeling of falling in love, which proves to be the most exhilarating experience of them all.
