Storyline

Skip Lewis is a 16 year old, who's been through some stuff. Like he has been having academic problems, and a girl whom he has been pursuing has told him that she has no interest in him. He tries to talk to his parents about this but can't, or thinks that they won't understand. So, he goes out and drives off a cliff. Now, his family's in denial saying that the whole thing was an accident. However, his best friend, Ken who was the last person he saw before, was told by Skip that he was considering killing himself and is feeling guilty that he didn't try to stop him.

If you can find this movie....
23 December 1999 | by (San Leandro, CA) – See all my reviews

then check it out. I remember seeing this in my early 20s and really being moved by it.Its about the expectations we set for ourselves and when we cant meet them how helpless we feel.Chad Lowe does a great job as a teen who feels hes failing everyone when his grades arent great.He commits suicide and the rest of the story is about the aftermath and how his death effects everyone. Wonderful Movie.If you can find it on VHS or DVD check it out
