How Can We Forget?
Budget's Gal | Kearns, UT USA | 09/15/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Starring: Ned Beatty, Linda Hamilton, Richard Thomas, Piper Laurie and Joshua Harris

This movie is based on the autobiographical book by Chris Oyler, about an inspirational AIDS drama (to say the least). Claire and Greg Madison discover that their hemophiliac son Ben has contracted the deadly virus through a tainted transfusion. Faced with the likelihood that Ben will not live out the year, the Madisons vow to make every day of that year count and to see to it that their son will not have to endure his trials alone.

This is one of the movies that I love and tolerate the most. I'm not a big fan of one of the main characters dying at the end of a movie. But if it leads to something positive and inspirational, I can't help but love it. I remember when this was a made for TV movie in 1988 and our whole family watching it. And from that, I remember the film clearly to this day. Through the "bitter-sweet" positive nature the film left us, I couldn't help but feel that there were some of the scenes on there hit pretty close to home...I grew up with doctors telling me I had 6 months left to live. But I ended up surprising all of the doctors and I'm still going strong today. But in my most trialed times when I was going through medical problems, I would always think about something more positive like puppies, ice cream, and in my worst moments, Jesus. Not all children are as lucky as I am, but I believe that all kids need SOMETHING to look forward to in their future. This is one of the few movies to do all of that. It touches all lives both young and old to prepare for something that will eventually happen to all of us.
A Beautiful Gift

"I saw this movie several times when it originally came out. It was beautiful. I helped explain the process of death, and the need for closure. As the parents told their son, he was safe, and "Go Towards the Light," what a wonderful gift - permission to die. This movie can be used with children who are terminal to teach them not to be afraid of death. Everyone should watch this movie - more then once."

"a beautifully written movie, about a child with Aids and how the family coped and taught the child to die. Saw the nivie when it came out back in '88? could not forget it and when i viewed it again , it had the same effect. Sweet, powerful, loving. A movie you won't quickly forget."
