Until about the age of seven, Lorenzo Odone was a normal child. After then, strange things began to happen to him: he would have blackouts, memory lapses, and other strange mental phemonenons. He is eventually diagnosed as suffering from ALD (adrenoleukodystrophy): an extremely rare incurable degenerative brain disorder. Frustrated at the failings of doctors and medicine in this area, the Odones begin to educate themselves in the hope of discovering something which can halt the progress of the disease.Written by

Do you know how many children die every year from choking on french fries? Many more than from Adrenoleukodistrophy. You see, ours is what is known as an orphan disease, too small to be noticed, too small to be funded, especially with the iron hand of "Reganomics".

No doubt Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon are two great actors who have been part of wonderful movies. In "Lorenzo's Oil" they're even better than usual. The story is about a boy who has a rare disease that affects him little by little. His parents, played by Nolte and Sarandon, make their best to help the boy. Great direction by George Miller.
