O ÓLEO DE LORENZO - Um garoto levava uma vida normal até que, quando tinha seis anos, estranhas coisas aconteceram, pois ele passou a ter diversos problemas de ordem mental que foram diagnosticados como ALD, uma doença extremamente rara que provoca uma incurável degeneração no cérebro, levando o paciente à morte em no máximo dois anos. Os pais do menino ficam frustrados com o fracasso dos... read more

A very good movie

I wasn't expecting much from this movie. Indeed, it seemed to be one of those typical dreadful true lifetime stories with some annoying sentimental music. However, I must admit, I was this time really swept away by this story and it is the proof that this genre which I usually despise can be actually quite spellbinding. The weird thing is that the story is actually rather straightforward (a young ... read more

"An emotional and heartwarming story that was very touching. I thought that Susan Sarandon was GREAT in this movie and if Nolte was not in it, she still would have been great. "

A complete review of George Miller's work (9 movies items)

" Cast : Nick Nolte, Susan Sarandon, Peter Ustinov What was it about? A boy develops a disease so rare that nobody is working on a cure, so his father decides to learn all about it and tackle the problem himself. My two cents: To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this movie. Indeed, it seemed to be one of those typical dreadful true lifetime stories with some annoying sentimental music. However, I must admit, I was this time really swept away by this story and it is the proof that t"

A very good movie

“I wasn't expecting much from this movie. Indeed, it seemed to be one of those typical dreadful true lifetime stories with some annoying sentimental music. However, I must admit, I was this time really swept away by this story and it is the proof that this genre which I usually despise can be actually quite spellbinding. The weird thing is that the story is actually rather straightforward (a young boy gets sick and his parents decide to find a cure for him) but the execution was just quite amazing. Of course, you have the standard melodramatic music, the drama, the emotional climax, but there is also a rational logic in the plot. I mean, you do believe, thanks to the great performances by Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon, that those two people would be smart enough, determined enough and dedi” read more

Clichés that belong to garbage (12 movies items)

"James Rebhorn character Who's James Rebhorn? He's not a good guy but not a bad guy either. He's barely even a bully. The only thing he is is THE DICKWAD who always disapproves of the main character's actions or ideas. "UGHH, you can't do that! That's highly unorthodox!" He has absolutely no other purpose than to be an uptight drop of testicle sweat. Often, this character is associated with a certain profession. If there's, for example, a district attorney or a university dean you can bet he"

"Not only are Augusto and Michaela Odone dedicated to making their son Lorenzo as comfortable as they can as he battles an apparently terminal illness, but they also work tirelessly to find a cure for an "orphan" disease that most doctors aren't even interested in studying. "
