Review by Sam Wilson (posted on 1-Oct-2005)

Marlon is a newly-wheelchair-bound soldier in a veterans hospital, learning to come to grips with his disability with the help of his wife and fellow paralyzed vets.

Marlon's first screen role, prior to Streetcar, is raw, hermetically sealed, with no imaginitive flourishes.. A fascinating look into the psyche of an actor who never shared the screen with his fellow actors but was often so brilliant he never needed to play off of anyone. MOVIE: **1/2, BRANDO: ***
