Though unendingly downbeat, this is remarkable in its realistic look at the results of a nuclear war. The performances are just as good, with Jason Robards as the doctor in charge of helping the survivors, Amy Madigan as an expectant mother-reluctant to have her baby in a nuclear ravaged country-and a once-in-a-blue-moon great performance by Steve Guttenberg, as a survivor who helps various others on his way to Lawrence. It benefits by not having political viewpoints (which would be unwanted in a film of this magnitude) and simply looks at the events from the people who have to experience them firsthand, and leaves behind a devastating impact on the viewer.
