It was very good movie. Sad but brutally honest. All the actors did a great job. It was also filmed in the town where I grew up. So it was pretty cool to see the background. The plot was easy to follow. I only wish that at the end you would find out what ended up happening to the doctor. All in all it was a good movie during the errer it was filmed.

A great but sad movie about a young girl trying to overcome bone cancer and the doctor who becomes her close friend during the struggle. My wife loves it but I cant watch it these days due to the sadness.

Always meets my expectations. This has been one of my favorites since I saw it in the theatre in the 70s. Worth renting, it's a story you won't forget.
