Synopsis
The Paul Newman TV adaptation of Michael Cristofer's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning 1977 play about three terminally-ill patients and how they and their families face the challenge. Newman made his TV directing debut with this film, co-produced by his daughter and starring his wife, and won an Emmy Award nomination for his work. Other nominations went to the movie itself (given theatrical-style credit as "A Paul Newman Film") as Outstanding Drama Special and to Cristofer for his teleplay adaptation of his own work.
