Jodie Foster is a brave soul: Not only did she agree to star as the ”wild woman” who grew up isolated in the North Carolina backwoods, she coproduced the movie that made the risky role possible. And it’s such a bummer when you go out on a limb for nothing. Video viewers may be forgiven for a little remote-control editing of the more embarrassing moments. Perhaps if Nell had been more than a catalog of simplified conventions (the noble savage, technology versus humanity, the rarity of enlightened doctoring) there might have been a happier ending — to her participation, that is. If the movie’s ending were any happier, you couldn’t choke it down. C
