A wealthy cosmetic tycoon and her 12-year-old daughter who's dying from leukemia, strike up a sentimental friendship with a California politician. Since the girl has only six weeks or less to live, the trio fly to New York City where the daughter skates the ice rink at Rockefeller Center, assumes the lead in The Nutcracker ballet, and sight-sees most of the city.Written by
A truly uplifting, bittersweet tale that provokes thought about how short and precious life is. Miss Healy gives a wonderful performance as a child with an insight for life that is well beyond her years. Her remarkable talent as a ballet dancer adds much culture and grace to the film. The Dudley Moore character's humor and compassion along with the magnificent and moving score make this a wonderful film which I will always cherish. I was so disappointed to find that it had not been released on DVD as of yet. I also learned there is not a soundtrack available either. I feel the release of a DVD and soundtrack would be a nice tribute to the memory of the wonderfully talented Mr. Moore who has now moved on to the next part of his journey.
