50/50, starring, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick. Directed by Jonathan Levine. (2011.) Library Call Number: PN1995.9.C55F54 2012.
Although billed as a comedy, the film is more a serious look at cancer in a young man, with poignantly funny scenes mixed in. The combination of drama and humor gives the film a more realistic feel and avoids what could have been the usual maudlin, Hollywood fare.
