Based on Jenny Downham’s debut novel “Before I Die”, the screenplay was written by British filmmaker Ol Parker who also directs. Dakota Fanning plays Tessa, a 17-year-old girl diagnosed with terminal cancer, who is determined to experience some regular teen thrills before she dies. She stars opposite hunky British actor Jeremy Irvine, who is currently making a name for himself as the lead character in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse. Olivia Williams (An Education, The Ghost Writer) and Paddy Considine (director of BAFTA-winning Tyrannosaur) also star.
