Dr. Thomas Vrain is a superstar in the field of Cardiovascular surgery, standing on the threshold of greatness as he becomes the first to accomplish a groundbreaking, history making, procedure.
Donald Sutherland's performance as the highly tauted, respected, and greatly worshipped Dr Thomas Vrain is amazing and poignant. Dr. Vrain is a much love father, and well respected heart surgeon that comes to the realization that "now is the time" when a young patient faces certain death. We see the good doctor rocket from quiet, hard-working anonymity to overnight success and along the way, we see his old life and routine crumble and change.
This movie contains other break-out performances, such as Jeff Goldblum, as determined inventer Aldo Gehring, a man that accomplishes his goals, and achieves the recognition he desires, only to become jaded and bitter. And your heart will break at the wonderful performance given by Mare Winningham, as the young woman who has the most to win or lose, as she places her life in Dr. Vrain's hands.
Along the way we see Dr. Vrain care for his patients with loving kindness in the midst of his hectic schedule, he interacts with friends and family. But as we watch Dr. Vrain become the miracle worker, we get to experience the effect this groundbreaking event will have on him and those in his orbit. Donald Sutherland's portrayal is cool and understated as the the self-assured and talented surgeon that reluctantly steps into medical history.

Age has nothing on this icon as she reminiscences about her life before, during and after Africa.
This wonderful film picks up where Out of Africa left off. Karen Blixen's life after Africa was just as compelling and adventurous. She speaks to the viewer from her home in Rungstedlund, Denmark, on New Years Eve 1958 as she prepares for her high profile trip to America. She has been a celebrated writer for years. She is giddy, bubbly, sad and remorseful. She reminiscences about her childhood in Denmark, falling in-love with Baron Bror von Blixen-Finencke, her farm and its workers in Nairobi, Kenya, and later Dennis Finch-Hatton. She relives her heartbreaking decision to leave Africa, and fulfills her desire of becoming a serious writer. Julie Harris's performance as the grand dame Baroness Blixen is superb, she inhabits this role completely. This film is a must see for all fans of Out of Africa.
A beautifully made film that celebrates the life of this unforgettable woman.
