I don't want to sound harsh or uncompassionate but there a hundred of these cases around the world and this really is no different from many of them. The title is irrelevant, Jonathan was a dearly loved child and it's nice when things like this are resolved but it's a blatant tear jerker.
The acting is ok, having had a rather bland script to work from. Christopher Burke in a way proves that having Downs Syndrome is not a hinderance in any way at all, he's an actor for goodness sake, and a very capable one at that.
There are endless TV movies about the subject, however well meaning they set out to be just end up patronising and sickly. These people arent babies and we don't need to be humoured about it.
