  1. The drama is likably low-key but builds little excitement, and Bowie's star billing says more about the power of his agent than the number of scenes he appears in.
  2. The film is admirably honest about death, so it may be helpful if you're looking for a way to talk to kids about a difficult subject. Otherwise, stand aside and let it pass.
  3. Aimed at youngsters, this odd mix of fantasy and disease-of-the-week conventions doesn't really gel, though its ambitions are laudable.

    An earnest, well-meaning film.

    Someone deserves the grand prize for persuading David Bowie to participate in this minor drama .The movie is bland and ordinary.
