The Boy in the Plastic Bubble

93 mins Teen 1976 US United States of America
Classics  /  Dramas  /  Romance



Based on a true story, John Travolta plays a kid who is born with a deficient immune system.


Tod Lubitch is born with a deficient immune system (which is unlike being born with AIDS). As such, he must spend the rest of his life in a completely sterile environment. His room is completely hermetically sealed against bacteria and virus, his food is specially prepared, and his only human contact comes in the form of gloved hands. The movie follows his life into a teenager.

I had totally forgotten about this gem of a movie. So glad IndieFlix helped me remember!
