My Brother's Keeper
1995, True Life
In this fact-based film, twins Bob (John Lithgow) and Tom Bradley (also Lithgow) are both teachers. HIV-positive Tom hopes to receive a bone-marrow transplant from Bob in order to slow the progression of the disease. When his insurance company denies coverage of the procedure, Tom goes public with his condition and files a lawsuit against the corporation. Despite his concerns about how the community will react, his friends, students and family -- especially Bob -- rally around his cause.
