Prepare for some serious weeping, because Amy Adams and Garrett Hedlund's upcoming cancer drama Lullaby is going to prompt some serious feelings. Probably the crying-related kind.

The film, written and directed by Andrew Levitas, is the story of a young man (Hedlund) who returns home to find that his father has only 48 hours to live. Interspersed with a fledgling romance with Adams' character, Hedlund finds himself dealing not only with his own family's tragedy, but his very relationship with the world around him.

Fortunately, what could be a mawkish and slushy piece of cinematic manipulation looks to be blessed with some interesting dramatic choices - and a cast most films would kill for. Hedlund and Adams are joined by Richard Jenkins, Anne Archer, Jennifer Hudson, Terrence Howard and Jessica Brown Findlay.

Which, considering Richard Jenkins is one of the most inexplicably underrated actors of his generation, is a great selling point if ever there was one.

Just how much of a tearjerker do you think Lullaby is going to be?
