Robinson portrays an elderly man who witnesses the murder of a friend.



Robinson described it as "a most rewarding experience, one which I thoroughly enjoyed".[2] Writer Luther Davis adapted the movie from a story by Arnold Horwitt.[3]


The film was very well received by critics. Robinson's performance was critically acclaimed and was suggested for awards.[4] It was the seventh most-watched primetime program in the United States for the week upon its debut.[5]

The Hollywood Reporter called Robinson's performance "strong and moving".[2]

The Los Angeles Times said Robinson's performance was "filled with skill and nuance" but the film "broke your heart by being a cop out of what it might have been."[6]
