When Kathleen Turner loses her husband in a fatal accident, she discovers that her daughter’s witnessing the event has caused her to stop communicating with the outside world. Having turned inwards, the little girl is beyond all reach unless her frantic mother can find something to do in order to help her. Tommy Lee Jones plays the doctor specializing in childhood autism who keeps close counsel with Turner in deciding what approaches to take with her. Turner is fantastic in this too-little seen melodrama, a slight film but a very involving one all the same.
