The Boy in the Plastic Bubble

1976

Randal Kleiser
Director

Well, it's all true. Tale of Tod Lubitch (in reality, David Vetter 1971-1984), afflicted with a lack of an immune system and doomed to be enclosed in a sterile environment forever. Archetypal TV movie and the template for oodles of others. Travolta is good. Keep the Kleenex handy. I'm not watching it. Easy film to find in the DVD bargain bins.
