Dr. David Edwards is a cancer specialist, and his life is his work. His only friend is Lou Rosen, 73. Lou is also David's patient, but at his age, chances are grim. Still, everyone deserves a chance, or at least that's what David thought before Sonny Collins walked into his office. On paper, Sonny looked ideal for his experimental trial: early forties with an inoperable baseball-sized tumor in his lung. But his file didn't say anything about his attitude: crass, crude, and indignant. Would the doctor who's famous for giving even the most gravely ill patient a chance, turn this man away simply because he has a bad attitude? Or is there some other reason? Sometimes healing has nothing to do with medicine. Written by
Special Ed is an excellent film about the struggle of finding hope in a situation that seems hopeless, and finding out that people we don't like could very well come back to us as friends later on in life. As the story unwinds, you find many things that will make you chuckle, but many more that will make you cry. The only thing that I thought that needed a little improvement was the length; it was a bit too long for my taste, but that's just me. However, the characters, story, and acting really make up for that. It's a one-of-a-kind film that should get an award in this time of half-baked films. I give this movie a nine out of ten stars.
