a forgotten jewel
3 September 2003 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

Its so hard to look back, it makes you think. I saw this film twenty years ago as a high school student. Three years after he made the classic Walt Disney film The Last Flight Of Noah's Ark, Ricky Schroder made this tv film. It sort of reminds you of Brian's Song. Its a film that makes you cry. He plays a boy who loses the person that he loves more than anyone else in the world. His mother dies of cancer and he and his emotionally distant father have to come to grips with the terrible loss. This is stuff that hits you right in the gut folks. I recently lost a close Gulf War buddy to cancer and I am coping with it. This movie does make you cry but it is very well done. I think its unfair that people remember Lindsay Wagner for her role as the Super Woman in that silly tv show. She is a very fine actress who really delivers in this role as a kind loving mother. Have you ever heard that urban legend about a mother who lifts a car off her child? That story illustrates to us that a mother's love is like no other and that is the kind of role she plays here. Her character is so wonderful and loving that it is unbearable when she dies. This film is based on a juvenile novel and it is one of the few films that I have seen that is almost as good as the book. Ricky really makes us feel his pain and does an outstanding job. I am glad that he and his father made peace at the end, but this is a tough film to watch. Make sure you have a lot of hankies on hand and have a really cheerful film like The Last Flight Of Noah's Ark (which Ricky was also in) that you can watch afterwards to help you recover.
