Kiefer Sutherland was Fantastic
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Never viewed this film and was completely surprised at the great performance Kiefer Sutherland,(Kevin Richter),"24" TV Series, gave as a very mentally disturbed young man around 17 years of age. Kevin Richter just sits on the floor under tables, chairs and does not speak to anyone. Marsh Mason,(Jennifer Hubbell), is a specialist in mental disorders and is chosen to take on this case, which all the doctors in the hospital think is completely hopeless and a big waste of time. Jennifer Hubbell tries to obtain medical records and personnel files concerning this very troubled young man and goes around completely in circles. There are days when Kevin improves and other times when he completely goes out of control. There is a scene where Jennifer tries to bring Kevin to a Pizza shop and he hides under the table and I need not tell you anymore. If you like Kiefer Sutherland, please do not miss this film.
