Boy in the Plastic Bubble, The


USA 1976, 96 minutes
Dir. Randal Kleiser
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Drama


Aroview: A cult telemovie starring John Travolta as an immune-deficient youngster with potentially fatal allergies, who has to exist in a sealed environment.

Based on the real case of David Joseph Vetter, this is given a melodramatic plotline about whether he should go into the outside world to win a girlfriend, but retains some touching qualities. Includes a cameo by the astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
