An above average drama about overcoming the reality of dying.
26 November 1998 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a similar premise to another movie I've seen called THE CHRISTMAS TREE (William Holden), where the young enjoys the final moments of his / her life by accepting their own true wishes. What follows is an experience based on true-life situations. Granted, THE FOURTH WISH is a fairly decent drama. There could've been some higher emotional values hadn't Sean's father argued so much about the useless obstacles facing him. It's not very tense, but it has some meaning to the story and should serve as a motivational tool for the children. This was made on Australian soil as the actors speak their own style of English. It's pretty good.
