Kiss and Cry is an inspirational biopic both beautifully tragic and heartwarming. It is a modern-day love story that will leave you smiling through tears.
Played by her real-life friend Sarah Fisher (Degrassi: The Next Generation), the story follows Carley Allison, an 18-year-old aspiring figure skater and singer who dreams of going to the Olympics. After struggling to breathe and ending up in the hospital, she undergoes numerous tests and learns she is only the second person on the planet to be diagnosed with a rare form of malignant melanoma in her trachea.
However, this film is not about the “C” word. Well, technically it is, but it’s not just about a form of cancer known as clear cell sarcoma. It’s a film about the amazing journey of Carley Allison as she refuses to let this devastating illness derail her from leading a life filled with love, romance, laughter and joy. The story follows her relationship with her new boyfriend John (Luke Bilyk, Degrassi: The Next Generation) while dealing with high school, prom, and her skating career through chemotherapy. The film also stars the wonderful Naomi Snieckus and singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk.
