Heart warming tale about redemption
24 July 2001 | by (West Valley) – See all my reviews

A long time ago this came on television in the 80's. It was and still is a very true to life story about a mixed up teen, who after stealing a car for a joyride, lands himself at Boystown. It is here where he learns who he really is and with the aid of caring adults and the brotherhood of the boys he boards with, that he learns his self-worth. Casey Siemazsko was remarkable as Andy Grainger and Art Carney was powerful as Father O' Halloran. It's too bad they don't make TV movies like this anymore. This film is down to earth and heartfelt.If you can find this one on the net or in a used video store I strongly recommend this one...there's a really great story of a young man's life turned around here.
