Parkinson's and politics

This is a true-story of Milly Kondrake, a political activist who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.Her husband, Mort, tells her story in the congress.In the 60's, Mort is a young journalist who falls for Milly Martinez, a Vassar graduate, who is part-Mexican, part-Catholic and part-Jewish.After a few difficulties they get married.In 1987 she finds some weird symptoms in her.She finds a change in her handwriting and there's some tremor.At the age of 47 she becomes diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.Her husband stays by her side, trying to do anything in saving Milly.Dan Curtis is the director Saving Milly (2005).It's based on Morton Kondrake's book.Madeleine Stowe is amazing as Milly.First she is this young woman filled with joy for life, and then she becomes this aging woman with a terrible disease who wants to die.Bruce Greenwood is terrific portraying her husband Mort with all his flaws, including alcoholism.Robert Wisden is great as Fred Barnes.Claudia Ferri is very good as Norma Alvarado.Rob LaBelle plays Mark, and he's good.This is a good TV movie about an important topic.Also Michael J. Fox, who has Parkinson's, is seen in this movie.We see his famous speech he gave in the congress.It's most touching to see him talking straight to the camera in the end.He says how practically nothing has been done in finding cure for Parkinson's disease.But Michael is hopeful.And so am I.
