Although she did not disclose it until 2002, Teri Garr is already showing visible signs of Multiple Sclerosis in this film. It is most noticeable when she is walking and talking with Soosh (Moira Kelly) outside and they walk down a ramp, with Teri holding on to the railing and walking on almost a diagonal with a weird limp.

I guess this film never found a distributor, since I never heard of it until it hit cable. A lot of familiar names in the cast, who all did creditable performances. Moira Kelly did well with her role, which contained considerable character development. Christopher Lloyd played his role refreshingly low-key. A better film than I expected.
