my sister keeper movie synopsis
Sara (Cameron Diaz) and Brian Fitzgerald (Jason Patric) have just been informed that their young daughter Kate (Sofia Vassilieva) has leukemia, and that she only has a few years to live. The doctor suggests to the parents that they try an unorthodox medical procedure of producing another child in a test-tube that would be a perfect match as a donor for Kate.
Sara will try anything to save Kate, and they have a new baby Anna (Abigail Breslin) to be used as a donor for Kate. The first thing they use is blood from the umbilical cord for Kate. As years go on, the doctors must take bone marrow from Anna to give to Kate. At age 11, the next thing Anna must give to her sister is a kidney. Anna has had enough of all of these medical procedures, and she decides to sue her parents for medical emancipation and the right to decide how her body will be used. The whole family is being torn apart by Anna's decision because everyone knows what will happen to Kate if she doesn't get a new kidney.
Anna will hire a maverick lawyer, Campbell Alexander (Alec Baldwin), who would look only onto Anna's interest, and nobody else's. Anna has paid a small initial fee with the money she obtained at a pawn shop. The judge orders Anna's parents not to pressure her at home anymore. Sara is the one who can't take that anymore, and she doesn't understand Anna at all.
The judgement goes on, and everybody has to take sides one way or another. Later on, the audience learns that the idea about emancipation was not Anna's, in fact it was Kate, the always-sick one, who asked her to put a stop to her endless suffering.
After the judge DeSalvo (Joan Cusack) has given her veredict, Anna has a car accident right outside the hospital. She is beyond hope, and she had donated all her organs. She loses and dies so that her sister can make an almost miraculous recovery. (erm I dont think this is the ending..do you??)
