Set in New York City and Carmona, Spain, Life Itself celebrates the human condition and all of its complications with humor, poignancy and love.

I’m not fully sold on this one yet. The trailer looks okay, but the story sounds great. It also has an interesting cast. I’m not so sure I’ll pay to see it on the big screen, although possibly seeing another trailer could change my mind. If not, I’m likely to stream it on digital. How about you? Do you think you will be seeing Life Itself?
