Teen with a bum ticker
9 July 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Rob Lowe plays a teenager with a bad heart. The performances are convincing and the story is well told. One learns a lot about what is involved in a heart transplant and you can feel sympathy for the son and the mother in this story.

If you liked Love Story or Eric you will probably like this as well.
