The Setting Son
Will Schaub, who won his own bout with cancer, scripted this family drama about leukemia. Cal (Will Schaub) misses a chance to compete in the Olympics after learning that his brother Max (Darin Cooper) needs a bone-marrow transplant. Cal heads home to see if he's a match. Shown at the 1997 Boston Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[E]xcept for [Darin] Cooper's sweet-natured Max, most of the characters are self-absorbed whiners unable or unwilling to listen to anyone else."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Variety
