Classic British drama directed by Lionel Jeffries. The film follows Baxter (Scott Jacoby), a young American schoolboy, who has recently moved to London with his uncaring socialite mother (Lynn Carlin). Essentially alone in a foreign land, Baxter struggles with a speech impediment which further separates him from his peers. Only through his relationship with his therapist (Patricia Neal) and a young couple (Jean-Pierre Cassel and Britt Ekland) living in the same building as him does Baxter begin to realise the love that's been missing from his life so far...
