FIGHT FOR LIFE (Television Release USA 1987)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

 Fight for Life shows Actor Jerry Lewis’ dramatic side. Even though it fails in believability at times, it’s worth a watch. Morgan Freeman is an interesting choice of casting for his part. The movie gets the job done for what it was meant to do.

 Storyline

 An optometrist fights to get United States approval for a drug that he believes will help his daughter’s epilepsy.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. It’s a good explore into the concept of how far to carry a fight as well as insisting on surviving well and at the best level one can live…not settling for less.
