The Boy in the Plastic Bubble
In this made-for-TV movie, John Travolta stars as Tod Lubitch, a teenage boy born without the necessary immunities to stave off diseases and infections. Because of this illness, Tod must live his entire life incased in a sanitary airtight environment; at home his room is closed off from his Family and at school he gets around in an airtight suit. However, when Tod falls in love with Gina Biggs (Glynnis O’Connor) he must choose between continuing to be closed off from those he loves or facing the near-certain death of living outside the bubble and following his emotions.
Robert Redford's The West
The wilderness, frontier lawlessness, and the bloodshed of the 40 years between the end of the American Civil War and the turn of the 20th century -- this docu-series explains all of that through the storylines of several historical figures including Jesse James, Crazy Horse, Wyatt Earp, and Buffalo Bill. Explore the violent, blood-soaked period in American history as each episode follows the stories and struggles of the Wild West’s most infamous outlaws.
On the surface, William Travers is a picture of success -- an accomplished criminal barrister happily living with his wife in a beautiful rural Suffolk home. But scratch beneath that surface and you’ll find that Travers is still recovering from a traumatic series of events that have shaken his belief in the legal system -- should he do what is right, or what is good for his client?
