I have added HD screen captures from My Sister’s Keeper and it’s DVD extras. This is truly a wonderful film. So honest, real and Cameron gives such a fantastic performance as Sara that I felt proud to be a fan watching her. She’s such an underrated actress, in my opinion, and she can handle drama very well. The rest of the cast also delivered awesome performances, especially Sofia Vassilieva as the dying Kate. Check out the screen captures by clicking on the previews above.
