The fictionalized story of Daniel, the son of Paul and Rochelle Isaacson, who were executed as Soviet spies in the 1950s.
"Desire" list: Timothy Hutton. "Could you coo, could you care/For a cunning cottage/That we could share/The world will pardon my mush/Cause I have got a crush, my baby, on you."
Just before Running on Empty and Family Business, Sidney Lumet already told us how hard it is to survive prominent parents. Recommended.
A near classic with some great time-bending direction by Sidney Lumet. Timothy Hutton is great the supporting cast is stellar: Ed Asner, Tovah Feldsuh; Amanda Plummer
