The girl with the leg brace. That’s how people have seen Susan Berlanger all her life. But while on a ski trip in the French Alps, she conceals her crippled leg in a cast. Now, people won’t see her as someone to be pitied. Or avoided. Or coddled. Kristy McNichol is Susan in a thoughtful, often funny and rapturously scenic (filmed in part in France’s mountainous Haute-Savoie region) tale of love’s liberating power and of Susan’s coming to terms with issues of self-esteem, smartly written by Allan Burns (A Little Romance) and directed by Edouard Molinaro (La Cage aux Folles). “There isn’t a person in the world who isn’t hiding something,” a friend counsels Susan. Once she understands that, Susan will know there’s really nothing to hide.
