Caroline? (1990)

That it was originally made for TV by a greeting card company shouldn’t dissuade you from giving this gem a chance. Before Hallmark had an entire channel of cookie-cutter romances, it was the only safe counter to modern political correctness that handles certain topics with patronizing forcefulness. Most movies portray the people they’re suppose to honor as characatures but, refreshingly, this film treats the issue of Special Needs (introduced by a suspiciously convenient long-lost relative, who stands to inherit a hefty sum) with such grace and tact the characters seem to live on after the credits roll.
