| Compelling and believable
Fans of the late John Ritter, as well as fans of good television in general, would be well advised to check this film out, particularly as it is now fairly easy to find on DVD. The movie focuses on the story of a VA caseworker (Alfre Woodard, in a terrific performance) who champions the cause of a Vietnam vet (Ritter) stricken with cancer caused by Agent Orange. Ritter's performance is totally believable and has not been overpraised. (Hard to believe that four years after this movie aired, Ritter was doing movies like PROBLEM CHILD.) Where he and Woodard are concerned, actors have won Oscars for far lesser work. And catch Woodard in a great role before she began getting typecast as sanctimonious authority figures. Highly recommended - and what with the current world events, this film is just as relevant as ever.
