Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 04/21/1995
"...Charismatic performances..."
Entertainment Weekly - 04/21/1995
"...What makes us weep is not that Dexter has AIDS but that Dexter and Erik have each other....THE CURE has managed that miracle."
Variety - 04/17/1995
"...Technically handled with aplomb and a pleasant lack of fussiness, the picture has a coziness that takes the drama to a disquieting grass-roots level..."
New York Times - 04/21/1995
"...Exceptionally well acted....A poignant pre-adolescent buddy movie..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/21/1995
"...Well-acted....[Horton] does elicit beautifully drawn and sustained portrayals from his young actors and also from Sciorra..."

Product Description:

A sensitive 11-year-old boy with AIDS teams up with a teenage rebel to sail down the Mississippi in search of a cure. Their adventure becomes a celebration of life and friendship.

Plot Synopsis:

"The Cure" is a touching tale of an unlikely friendship between two boys: Dexter, who has AIDS, and his neighbor Erik, a transplanted Southern teen trying to adjust to life in a new place.
Despite his mother's disapproval, Erik makes friends with his ailing, younger neighbor. At first the boys communicate from over the fence, but as the bond between them develops, Erik and Dexter come into closer contact. Their tight friendship ultimately leads the two to embark on a Mark Twain-like adventure down the Mississippi River.
