Summary as written in movie profile
6 December 2005 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie in an art house theater when it was first released and went back the same week to watch it again. It's stayed with me all these years and I can't believe how difficult it is to find on DVD or video. If anyone has any clues, it'd be greatly appreciated. I loved this movie; it works on so many levels: the writing, acting and directing are superb. I am eager to see how it holds up against my memory as now it's been over 20 years. The young boy was terrific. I have even called the Canadian film board to see if perchance they have a copy. Now going to try Robert's Video in Canada, though the film is not listed on their website.
