Rob Lowe at his best
1 September 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Although this movie is a little dated now, I still find it an interesting and moving drama. It's based on a true story of a boy with a terminal heart condition, where a heart transplant becomes his last hope. At the time heart transplants were still in their infancy an as a result there is a sad last chapter to this story.

Rob Lowe gives a very moving performance as the boy rechristened Thursday's Child, with far to go. And Gena Rowlands is excellent also as his long suffering mother.

Also look out for a young Tracey Gold as the youngest sibling in the family.
