About Now Is Good
Seventeen-year-old Tessa (Dakota Fanning) wants to experience life to the fullest, and has a list of things she'd like to do, like losing her virginity and trying different recreational drugs. However, unlike most teenagers, Tessa doesn't have a long time to explore growing up – she has leukaemia and will die within months. With the help of her supportive, rebellious best friend Zoey (Kaya Scodelario) she sets about completing her list. Her loving family try to deal with their grief over her illness; her mother (Olivia Williams) is encouraging about Tessa's goals, while her brother is confused and angry over his conflicting emotions. Tessa begins a relationship with her good-looking new neighbour Adam (Jeremy Irvine), and love blooms from the hopeless situation.
