Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 06/21/1991
"...A pretty, decorative movie....Roberts' Hilary is frankly irresistible..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/21/1991
"...[Roberts] manages to seem more alive than life itself on the screen, alternately projecting resilience and vulnerability as conflicting emotions play across her face like light on water..."

Product Description:

A simple romance that nonetheless carries a great deal of emotional impact, DYING YOUNG tells the story of Hilary O'Neil, an attractive young woman who, upon discovering her live-in boyfriend in bed with another woman, must move out and find a new job. She accepts a position as the in-house caretaker of Victor Geddes (Campbell Scott), a wealthy young man who is suffering from blood cancer. Hilary's first experiences of the aftereffects of chemotherapy leave her in doubt as to whether she can handle the job, but Victor convinces her to stay, as he is beginning to see in her a reason to live. When Victor informs her that his chemo has been successfully completed, they move to a secluded home to start a life together, until cancer once again intrudes. The film is rich in its portrayal of the hardships inflicted by cancer patients and their loved ones, as well as the power of love to lend strength to endure.

Plot Synopsis:

Julia Roberts stars in this tear-jerker about a young working-class woman who takes a job as a live-in companion to a terminally ill patient. Her charge is a wealthy, reclusive young man with an eye for the paintings of Gustav Klimt -- and for lovely redheads like his new nurse. The relationship between the effete rich boy and the street-wise poor girl blossoms into romance as he teaches her about art and culture and she teaches him about life.
