HBO (5/22)

Eric Fryer, a 21-year-old acting novice who lost a leg to cancer, gives a moving performance as the young Canadian amputee who ran some 3,000 miles across Canada to raise money for medical research before succumbing to cancer in 1981. Robert Duvall is fine as Terry's mentor. (Subsequent air dates: 5/25, 5/28, 5/31)
