Based on a true 1985 story, "Lorenzo's Oil" chronicles a couple's search for a cure for their son's fatal disease. After diagnosing 5-year-old Lorenzo Odone's condition as an extremly rare degeneration of the nervous system known as Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), the doctors tell his parents that there is nothing that can be done, and that he has only two years to live. Refusing to accept the word of the medical establishment, the Odones begin researching ALD themselves. As her husband desperately seeks a cure, the boy's mother devotes herself to keeping her child alive with a single-minded fanaticism that alienates everyone around her, including, at times, her husband.

  • Lorenzo's Oil

    If you like real-life themes then you will like this movie. It is not (they wouldn't like it anyway) a movie for children. I thought Susan Sarandon and Nick Nolte were superb in this one but the subject is not for the "faint of heart" as it is a very informative movie and tells the whole story even the most difficult parts. It really gets you thinking and gives you a true picture of life with a disabled child. It also gives you some of the technical aspects of treatment. Give it a try.

    This movie is very informative. I enjoyed the raw emotions. I would recommend this movie to all of my friends. The acting was excellent. Nick Nolte is a must see performance.
