Storyline

Returning from a business trip abroad, Jane (Bernadette Peters) has a dizzy spell while at home. As her condition does not improve, she consults a doctor who finds that she is very ill and that she has no family to help her through this very trying time. He enlists the help of a therapist (Mary Tyler Moore) who is very hesitant to become involved in this case due to the loss she suffered as a young child. As her condition deteriorates, Jane learns how to come to terms with her past as does her therapist. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

I'm still crying...
1 December 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I finished watching this movie for the first time almost 30 mins ago, and I'm still crying.

This is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. I've always loved Bernadette Peters- the lady is so talented, but after watching this incredibly heartbreaking film, I'm in absolute awe of her.

If you've never seen it, go and rent it- i guarantee it'll move your heart.
