Some people make their own miracles.
Intellectual parents seek and find a way to save their son from a rare nerve disease called ald.
Editor's Note
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. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best (Original) Screenplay, Best Actress--Susan Sarandon.

Rolling Stone
"...[Sarandon] delivers a stunning, emotionally direct performance..." 01/21/1993 p.54-5

USA Today
"...[A] cinematic wonder....An exhilarating experience akin to watching a breathless mystery thriller unfold..." -- 4 out of 4 stars 12/30/1992 p.1D

Chicago Sun-Times
"...It takes a heartbreaking story and pushes it to the limit, showing us the lengths of courage and imagination that people can summon when they must. The performances, by Susan Sarandon and Nick Nolte, are daring, too..." 01/15/1993 p.39
