50/50 ; the novel of a man who infected with cancer, he doesn't use car since being dangerous and risk of death. Leadind actor Adam, even when he crosses the street, he waits the green light is on. He has unhappy relationship is about to finish. Joseph Gordon Levitt acts Adam's role. And the event named the film : The Adam 's chance of getting over %50. From the moment he learns the disease, he passes four period as emotional. Gangrene relationship, illness father, paranoid mother, close friend and therapist accompany him in these periods. First period is negligence : everything is OK. Director shows us people can be selfish with the behavior of mother and deceptive girlfriend. When he know that his girlfriend is cheating, he pass second period : anger. Of course, we can see it in therapy séance. In this period, side effects of chemotherapy is seen. During the chemotherapy, he meets a friend and his friend dies. With this death, he passes the third period : emotional upset. He learns that therapy doesn't answer the purpose, he should get surgery. This event affects him, too. I think his nervous breakdown in car, in terms of acting, is successful. Due to nervous breakdown, he passes the last period : acceptance. These events develops very fast. Anyway, you can see the last of the film when watching it. It is a nice film.
