Good movie about a teen with a debilitating seizure disorder who takes his parents to court to become emancipated so that he could have controversial brain surgery
13 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good movie. The courtroom scenes were a little overdone, but Dempsey did a good job convincing me that an intelligent minor is capable of making decisions about his own quality of life. (Brought to mind the same issues that Jodi Piccoult addressed in her recent book "My Sister's Keeper"). It's ironic that Patrick Dempsey played the affected teen, and the 10/4/06 episode of Grey's Anatomy featured Dempsey (as "Dr. McDreamy") performing the same operation on a man with a severe seizure disorder. Dempsey has come a long way since the unpopular, dorky character in "Can't Buy Me Love". Who knew that awkward, skinny teenager would turn out to be McDreamy?
