Book, Film, TV | The C Word

Sheridan Smith, along with James Corden, is one of my favourite British icons (from way back in the early days of Gav n Stace), and who recently stunned in a short film called the C-Word. It's about Cancer, which thank goodness I do not have - but the message, and powerful subtly, is one that anyone living with a debilitating illness can empathise with.
It involves blogging (!) - both the raw/honest and inspirational - which is certainly helping to light the fire in my attitude. Powerful emotions. The Lows. Hope. Family. FUNNY! & truly uplifting for anyone who is feeling bleurgh; or anyone, everyone, looking for a really worthwile way to spend an hour and a half.
(Vague? Wouldn't want to give away any spoilers)

I urge you to watch it, after, or as an alternative to Eurovision; available for free on iplayer, until the 1st of June.
I'm basically promoting it, not for incentive, but for very good reason. Lisa Lynch, the shining star the film is based off, looks like a truly remarkable lady; and Sheridan Smith (aswell as the few surrounding actors), has done her proud. 5*.

The C Word
'The C Word is an adaptation of Lisa Lynch's candid book about her experience of cancer, based on her popular blog which was launched shortly after her diagnosis. This film is a defiant, ballsy and surprisingly funny story of life, love and cancer.'
