A Child Is Waiting stars Hollywood legend Judy Garland (The Wizard Of Oz, A Star Is Born) in her penultimate film and features one of her most mature and outstanding performances. Directed by independent cinema’s most respected pioneer John Cassavetes (The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie, Gloria, A Woman Under The Influence), A Child Is Waiting also features Burt Lancaster (The Swimmer, Elmer Gantry, From Here To Eternity) with an early performance from Cassavetes muse Gena Rowlands (One Night On Earth, Opening Night). Judy Garland plays Jean Hansen, a compassionate teacher newly employed within a small town school for disabled children. Instantly bonding with an autistic boy called Reuben, Jean believes that a reunion with his absent parents could be fundamental for his development. But the school’s authority figures begin to disapprove of her modern methods and her friendship with the alienated, helpless Reuben. With a great cast and superb direction, A Child Is Waiting is a deeply touching drama with a hard-hitting message.
