About a strong, noble woman and doctor.
26 May 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA.) – See all my reviews

I realize that the film is based on a book and a true story. This lady was always one tough cookie as portrayed by actress Kristy McNichol. Boy did she overcome the barriers. She was always independent and strong. She was always noble and fair with her kids. Her husband in the film was portrayed by actor David Paymer. I'm guessing that he and I both are xxy males. Thus, I'm guessing that the husband in the film was one as well. The husband in the film was perfect for this woman and really backed her up. I guess she figured he was someone she could handle. Still, to take this guy was noble on her part, I think. Given this, I am also curious about the history of the husband. David Paymer is a role model of mine. I like this lady doctor, her kids, and her husband. I like what they are about. I would like to contact them. I still have yet to read the book. Anyway, what an amazing story, what an amazing film. Way back in 1985 and still on my mind.
