Ed Stone's bittersweet drama "Griffin and Phoenix" concerns Griffin (Dermot Mulroney), a divorcee suffering from cancerous lesions in his chest that give him a life expectancy of less than two years. He falls in love with academic adviser Phoenix (Amanda Peet), and the pair decide to 'live life to the fullest' by fulfilling all of Griffin's childhood fantasies, from painting water towers to sneaking into movies to hopping freight trains. But a secret of Phoenix's threatens to damper the joy of their time together.

This is a clip from the film. I have seen this film more than once. This clip really resonates with me, as an infertile. I have seen parents treating their children like this too often, but I have never gone off like Phoenix.

Can you relate?
