Reviews
Mine: Dreary and pointless. A pretty acurate dipiction of chemo therapy. But Julia is way over her head.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Aimless young woman answers a classified ad and becomes nurse/companion to a 28-year-old poor-little-rich-boy who's suffering from leukemia; needless to say, they fall in love. As vehicle for Roberts' charms, it works; as love story it has its moments; but as a tearjerker it never really delivers, wandering toward an inconclusive (and unsatisfying) finale. Scott shares a few scenes with his real-life mother Dewhurst.
