Academy Award-winner Whoopi Goldberg ("Sister Act," "The Color Purple," "Ghost"), in a role Judith Crist called her "best dramatic performance to date," portrays a wise, warm and independent Jamaican housekeeper who becomes an unforgettable influence in the life of a young boy, (Neil Patrick Harris, TV's "Doogie Howser," who received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in his film debut) providing him with affection, growth and gentle comic comfort to the harsh realities of his parents' divorce. Directed by Robert Mulligan ("Summer of '42") and written by Mark Medoff ("Children of a Lesser God"), the New York Daily News gives this movie ***l/2, and says Whoopi Goldberg"... proves once again that she's a fine actress."
