Bob Jones (Michael Keaton) is diagnosed with terminal cancer just as his wife Gail (Nicole Kidman) learns she is pregnant with the couple's first child. Realizing he might die before the child is born, Bob decides to make a video about his life so that his child will someday be able to know him. In making the video, Bob embarks on a journey of self-discovery and decides to reconcile with his past, including a years-long estrangement with his own father.

Plot Summary
Bob and Gail Jones, a happily married couple expecting their first child, are passionately devoted to one another. But tragedy strikes their otherwise untroubled middle-class home when Bob learns he has advanced terminal cancer. Faced with this profound crisis and the realization that his child may never know him, Bob decides to make a video documenting his life so that his son will have some knowledge of his father. Creating the video proves to be an emotionally and mentally herculean task, as Bob discovers he's as shallow as the public relations material he produces for a living. Before he can successfully complete the video, Bob has to make peace with himself, reconcile with his estranged parents, and accept the inevitable.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...Finally wrenching in ways that will leave viewers thinking hard about their own lives..." 11/12/1993 p.C17

Entertainment Weekly
"...Emotionally gripping, sometimes devastating....Worth any viewer's attention..." -- Rating: B 06/03/1994 p.66

Variety
"...It's an emotional, spiritual odyssey....[A] sincere, often touching story..." 11/15/1993

Washington Post 9 of 10
Bruce Joel Rubin's lastest movie accelerates so rapidly into the serious, you're left dry-mouthed and blown away. You're pulled in deeper and deeper until--by the anguishing conclusion--you're hanging on for dear life... Thanks to Keaton...the expereince is roundly touching... he keeps you laughing and choking all the way to the bitter end. - Desson Howe
