Good Teen Film
27 March 2001 | by (Cleveland, Ohio USA) – See all my reviews

Thanks to a well written screenplay by John Furia, Jr., based on William Corbin's novel, "Smoke" emerges as an above average tv production.

Sixteen-year-old Ron Howard captures the essence of his 14-year-old character, Chris Long, a boy suffering from the loss of his father and coping with his stepfather, Cal, sensitively played by Earl Holliman.

Jacqueline Scott as Chris' mother rounds out a trio of deeply felt portrayals. The title belongs to a German shepherd, who also does some impressive work.

Audiences of 8-17 should especially appreciate this drama, which can nicely serve as a family film.
