CLOUDS (Movie Review); A big dream for Osteosarcoma survivors


I hope my story makes everyone realize, that you don’t have to find out you are dying to start living. -Zach Sobiech


Adapted from Laura Sobiech's book Fly a Little Higher: How God Answered's Mom's small prayer in a Bigway, in 2020, Justin Baldoni as a director tells the true story of a survivor of end-stage Osteosarcoma cancer who managed to create a song called Clouds which reached number 1 on the charts. iTunes.



Tells the story of Zach Sobiech (Fin Argus) as a survivor of end-stage Osteosarcoma who has a dream to have his own album. His love of singing since childhood with his close friend, Sammy Brown (Sabrina Carpenter) makes Zach determined to be able to forget the tough days of dealing with cancer that attacks the bones in him.



CLOUD is certainly not a spectacle that only highlights Zach's side as the main character, but this film also shows us how important the role of caregiver is in the survivor's life. Zach's mother, Laura Sobiech (Neve Campbell) is the best support system for Zach. Also supported by his family who love Zach very much; Rob (Tom Everett Scott), Sam (Dylan Everett), Grace (Summer H. Howell), Alli (Vivien Endicott).


As Caregivers, we will know, that Zach's life is nothing short of love. In fact, his beautiful girlfriend, Amy (Madison Iseman) loves him very much.


Being a Caregiver is certainly not easy. Jam. Keeping the survivors comfortable, as Caregivees, they naturally continue to be worried about Zach's deteriorating condition. Laura, the mother who is very thorough and good at reading the situation that Zach faces, makes Zach survive several scary things that happen to his body.

Seeing the way this film tells the story, I remember cancer survivors who are also good at singing. Jane Marczewski. Lung, spine and liver cancer survivors. In the America's Got Talents audition, Jane, known by her Instagram account name Night Birde, received a Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell, the judge who is known to be the most loyal and firm.

Jane's personal song "It's Ok" also ranked #1 on iTunes. However, due to her deteriorating legal condition, Jane chose to resign from the talent show.

Both Zach and Jane are special people who remind us how precious one life is.



Fin Argus is very good at playing the role of Zach. Sabrina Carpenter, who plays Zach's childhood friend and accompanies Zach to achieve his dream is impressive. I like the wise side and love Sabrina Carpenter's acting. Almost all of the roles in this CLOUDS film are very good at carrying out their respective roles


Receiving a 7.8/10 rating from 8.1k members at Imdb, CLOUDS also won awards at the Heartland Film event, the Truly Making Picture Award-Justin Baldoni category, and a WGA Award nomination at the Writers Guild of America, USA 2021)
