Storyline

The finding of a body on the beach leads to the conviction for murder of Bill Holleran (who claims innocence), thanks to the testimony of a 10-year-old boy, David Gordon. In flashback, Holleran's landlord Steve Martin recalls his prior involvement with David's widowed mother Anne, broken off because of the disabled boy's vindictive jealousy. Now that a man's life is at stake, Steve reluctantly re-enters the lives of the Gordons to find the truth. Is David a monster or just misunderstood?

Cornell Borchers give an amazing performance!
31 March 1999 | by (Brea, Ca.) – See all my reviews

Flood Tide is a very good drama about a man sent to prison on the testimony of a young boy. A friend is sure that the crime never happened the way the boy said it did. A great story, even if parts of it go against common logic. Cornell Borchers' performance reminded me of Ingrid Bergman's sensitivity on film. Well worth seeing.
