The Boy in the Plastic Bubble (1976) John Travolta




Born with no immunity against disease, he lives in a plastic prison. Inside he is protected. Outside, there is the chance of death.

Director:

Randal Kleiser

Writers:

Douglas Day Stewart (teleplay), Joe Morgenstern (story) 

Stars:

John Travolta, Glynnis O'Connor, Robert Reed

For a TV movie this is one of the best. John Travolta gives a convincing performance and you really feel sorry for the boy. He looks at the girl next door growing up and yet he can't ask her on a date or do anything that normal kids get to do. The film follows his life as he grows up living in a hermetically sealed room. One emotional scene sees him get his first kiss, even though its between a plastic wall. The Boy in the Plastic Bubble is a love story that is both heart warming and tragic. ★★★
