The picture got made because of two reasons: (1) The box-office success of Love Story (1970) this film being also based on a novel by Erich Segal. The words "Love Story" were mentioned twice on some movie posters. (2) A cycle of movies about divorce and family dramas spurred on by the fact that two then recent Best Picture Oscars had been won by them [Ordinary People (1980) and Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)].

This Martin Sheen film went almost completely unnoticed on its release, probably because the film company knew it wouldn't be worth promoting it. The film is a bit pretentious; it's characters speak lines in a manner that no one would really say in our real world. The actors do the best they can with the script they were given (including Blythe Danner, Craig T. Nelson, and Sebastian Dungan as Martin Sheen's 10-year old French son). It's not their fault, but the fault of the screenwriter Erich Segal (who also wrote the novel). Towards the end the movie goes to extremes to jerk the tears out of the two or three people sitting in the theatre. Really, not very good.
