A fine film
I originally saw this film on television a long time ago. It was filmed primarily at the Harlem Valley Psychiatric Center in Wingdale NY, a facility that is now closed. The opening scene when Marsha Mason is walking down some stairs in front of a large window is in the Administration Building. The kids playing soccer a few scenes later in the background were workers children. The rest of the film was filmed locally in Poughkeepsie (i'm not sure where) with one scene being at the Hudson River Psychiatric Center.

As a later Kiefer Sutherland fan I was quite disappointed to learn he had been near my hometown filming a movie.

Overall I thought it was a wonderful movie with good performances by all.
