My Sister’s Keeper

My Sister's Keeper

Conceived by means of in vitro fertilization, Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin) was brought into the world to be a genetic match for her older sister, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), who suffers from acute promyelocytic leukemia. Their lives have been intertwined because of their donor-recipient relationship from the minute Anna was born. Anna suffers, such as losing the chance to become a cheerleader or soccer player in order to be there when her sister needs her, but when she turns 13 and Kate goes into renal failure, needing Anna’s kidney, Anna sues her parents for medical emancipation.

Attorney Campbell Alexander (Alec Baldwin), who has a dog named Judge, agrees to work for Anna pro bono. Later in the movie it is revealed that Judge is Campbell’s service dog and he agreed to work for Anna because he is a epileptic and understands what it feels like not being able to have control over ones body.
