This Hallmark Channel movie presents Chad Lowe as Philip Fielder, young advertising executive on the rise, a fairhaired boy in the eyes of his boss George Segal. He's also got a not so friendly rival in the agency played by Bodhi Elfman who isn't too squeamish about doing everything possible to demean Lowe in Segal's eyes.

Lowe's tense, but well ordered universe is interrupted when his sister dies in a plane crash and he is left with the custody of his autistic nephew, 8 year old Kesun Loder. 8 year olds are hard enough to deal with in any event, but an autistic child obsessed with airplanes and tennis balls could be too much for Lowe. He's got to make Fielder's Choice sooner or later.

The best part about Fielder's Choice are the incredibly touching scenes between Chad Lowe and Kesun Loder. Loder will more than likely be a higher functioning adult than Dustin Hoffman became in Rain Man. Still the parenting is a daunting challenge for anyone.

Bohdi Elfman will be someone you truly love to hate. He's not above using Loder's autism against Lowe in a most underhanded way.

Fielder's Choice is a good heart tugging drama from Hallmark and well worth a look.
