The wild child
13 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Well, this looks pretty familiar to me because I watched François Truffaut's L'Infant SAUVAGE a couple of days ago, from a true story. So this TV movie brings less elements than I would have got without the French feature seen just before. Yes, the Truffaut's film was far better than this one. But that doesn't remove any quality to this American movie at all, on the contrary. I am surprised that no one has commented this resemblance with the French film, which was rather well widely shown on the US territory.

The perfect topic for a TV feature, inspired by I guess true events too. Touching story supported by very good performances, especially Maggie's character, played by Georges C Scott's wife.
