Gideon is placed in the closest institution that can look after him: A retirement home for the elderly. It is the story of a simple, innocent man who comes among a group of elderly people who have lost their lust for life and are merely waiting out the remaining years of their lives.

I'm not sure this is a TV-movie, at least it's not listed as that on IMDb. Perhaps you just posted it in the wrong section by mistake?

Oops! :oops: it is not a TV movie which I always think it is. Actually, it is a movie according to IMDb. Please help me to move it to the suitable section. Thank you very much!

Run time: 97 minutes only? And IMDB calls it a movie? Interesting! What kind of a role Chuck plays here? Please let me know something more about this one, when you find it convenient.

Thank you so much. I need to watch this one. Chuck as an ex-Philosophy-professor,-- that would be very interesting to see, at that point of his career.

GIDEON is terrific. Christopher Lambert plays a God-like figure (look at his initials) who joins an old folks home. Its a really wonderful movie with a great cast - Heston gives an amazing performance. Whatever you do - watch this Heston gem as soon as possible.

Thank you(I don't know how many times I need to say this to you, you are alwys so helpful, and i know you will be so!), I really value your comments. It must be great then... but I don't know how I can be able to get this, In India it is not available. I think I should ask a relative, who lives in USA, to look for it at his convenience.
