He has wed Laura Leighton, a young sexy model. Tessa is fuming and you think something is going to happen. Something happens all right. Tessa is diagnosed with terminal cancer and the film depicts the relationship that she builds with Leighton, the latter who shall take care of her children.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film shows the coming of maturity of the Leighton character. She certainly rises to the occasion.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe last part of the film falters somewhat as it becomes preachy with the inevitable dialogue.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNevertheless, the performances are quite good, especially those of Eikenberry and Leighton.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLloyd Bridges gives a memorable but brief performance as the father who really never understood Tessa and now has to come to grips with what is occurring.”
