CastRichard Harris Lois Nettleton Jodie Foster Geraldine Fitzgerald William Windom Brad Savage
NotesFoster plays an 11 year old girl who is dying of heart disease. There's lots of father/daughter bonding while her mother seeks doctor after doctor to find a cure. She clocks up 18 in all. Foster bears up to her fate while the adults around her crumble. The general quality of acting is very good but the scenes between Foster and her 9 year old (boy) friend are superb though the dialogue is rather precocious. Heartily recommended.
