English Summary:

Tuesdays with Morrie is a 1999 American made-for-television film adaptation of Mitch Albom's book of the same title.[1] Directed by Mick Jackson, it features Jack Lemmon in a role for which he won an Emmy award.

 

In 1995, Mitch Albom (Hank Azaria) became caught up with his career as a sport commentator and journalist. His girlfriend, Janine (Wendy Moniz), a backup singer feels that he never places her as a priority. Mitch is consistently doing six things at once. One evening, while on the telephone with Janine, Mitch flips through TV channels and lands on an edition of Nightline where he sees his former professor Morrie Schwartz (Jack Lemmon) being interviewed by Ted Koppel. Morrie discusses his current health and lets everyone know he is dying of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's disease" or ALS. Morrie a retired sociology professor from Brandeis University comes on the show to describe his final journey.

 

As life goes on with work and balancing his relationship with Janine, Mitch feels bothered he never got a chance to visit his old professor. Feeling so moved by the interview, Mitch reaches out for a visit with Morrie after sixteen years of no contact. Morrie has an affinity with food and it becomes a regular endeavor with his visits with Mitch. Office hours during university were on Tuesdays, Morrie would grade papers and critique student’s assignments, Mitch now makes it a habit to visit him every Tuesday. Connie (Caroline Aaron), Morrie’s home nurse, is his primary care taker. After leaving Morrie, Mitch continues working and can’t find a groove with Janine.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Mitch Albom saját élményei alapján írta meg regényét öreg professzoráról, Morrieról, aki még a halál kapujában is az élet szeretetére nevelte őt. A regény óriási sikert aratott és hosszú ideig vezette a bestseller listáját. A filmváltozatban Hank Azaria alakítja Mitchet, a karrierista sportújságírót, aki túlfeszített munkatempója miatt teljesen elhanyagolja barátnőjét. Egy este felfigyel egy tévéinterjúre, melyben kedvenc egyetemi professzora, Morrie beszél gyógyíthatatlan betegségéről és egyben üzen is a világnak: az élet fontosságát helyezi mindenek fölé. Mitch elhatározza, hogy majdnem két évtizednyi szünet után meglátogatja tanárát. Már az első pillanatban magával ragadja az öreg optimizmusa, humora és bülcsessége. Azon veszi észre magát, hogy nem tud szabadulni Morrie hatása alól és élete kezd jobb irányba változni...
