Demi Moore's first film
29 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been doing research on Demi Moore and was glad to discover her first feature film appearance in the film CHOICES. While it has An Afterschool Special feel to it, one must remember that the ABC Afetrschool Specials were beautifully made that stressed positive family values. I was both surprised and delighted by the film, and while Demi's role as the hero's (Carafortes) girlfriend is small, she managed to already show her stuff as an excellent actress, though in this film which she made when she was just 18, it would have been hard to guess that she would rise to such Hollywood glitter and stardom. All the performances, football and musical scenes were very good, especially considering the $350,000 budget of the film. Demi and Carafotes had great chemistry between them, which enhanced the overall excellent quality of the film, which made it a very pleasing watching experience for me and my teen children. Writer Rami Alon (aka Jon Stevens) and his Academy Award nominated Georgy Girl co-director Silvio Narizzano did a glowing job with the little resources they had on hand making the film look much bigger than the money it was produced for. I highly recommend it as an inspirational, never give up in face of obstacles type film for all families, and in particular high school students.
