She was outstanding also with the Oscar nomination do not forget she also was nominated for a Golden Globe, she said she ended up quitting acting because she got tired of being in the spotlight.

One boring rainy night I watched this with my mom on Amazon Prime Video, she loves this old movie and I thought it was pretty good, the little girl did an awesome job.

Well never heard of this till this very instant reading this, what do you expect my dad was a kid when this came out.

I will try to find it and watch it on a rain-soaked day.

A very good reason to walk away seems similar to Mara Wilson's reason.

This year 32 years since she gave that fine acting performance, I think she is just amazing to this day try and find and read some of her articles especially her first for Esquire.

Good for her to get out before Hollywoods filth consumed her, she was brill in The Goodbye Girl.

She was indeed brilliant in "The Goodbye Girl" a good romantic comedy from the 70s when Neil Simon used to spin these out on a regular basis.

On a side note, I love the theme song from David Gates of Bread, love the 70s music, when I listen to music over the decades I love 60s, and 70s and even 80s have some memorable music 90s onward, meh just noise.
