Third Star Is A Hit Film

"Third Star" is a British film that first premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 2010. It was released in the United Kingdom nearly a year later. It follows a group of friends on a trip to the coast one final time. James had just turned 29 and does not expect to see another birthday. He is dying of cancer and suffering from intense pain and weakness. His friends, Davy, Bill, and Miles, hike with him to a favorite beach.

Along the way inner strengths and weaknesses of all members of the band of friends are revealed. Traveling over the rough terrain allows the boys some fun and enjoyment before James's terminal illness takes its final toll. They also come across a few odd characters and difficult situations that test the limits of their collective patience. As each other boy makes revelations James pushes them to appreciate how much time they have ahead of them. This is sometimes done in anger. The boys finally reach the beach and come to a final arrangement.

This comedic drama swings from heart tugging moments to a joyous romp in the fields of Wales. While some critics didn't like the movie one stated that, most importantly, "...don't leave before the end."
