The Doctor 1.0 stars

Becomes a patient. Becomes a better doctor because of it. (Starts combing his hair in a less severe, softer style too.) William I.M. Hurt is not terribly persuasive as either the cool, carefree doctor at the beginning or the warm and caring doctor at the end, but he does pretty well as the temperamental patient in between. Randa Haines, who directed Hurt in Children of a Lesser God, is certainly warm herself, occasionally even goopy: the Zorba-esque Dance of Life in the desert at sunset with a terminal brain-tumor patient. Elizabeth Perkins, Christine Lahti, Mandy Patinkin. 1991.
