A Warm December


Time Out says

Black radical chic with a tragic twist. Poitier, a widowed doctor, runs a ghetto clinic in Washington DC, races motor-bikes on the side, and has enough money to live in style. While in London on holiday with his 10-year-old daughter, he meets and falls in love with Catherine (Anderson), daughter of an ambassador from a new African state. Punctuated by unnecessary mystery music and mysterious-looking foreigners in raincoats, the secret emerges that Catherine is dying of sickle cell disease. The love is short-lived. She is beautiful, bright, and brave. We all leave in tears.
