This film deals with important issues but suffers from the made-for-tv vernacular in which it is filmed and could use some serious rewriting.
A divorce told from a child's point of view is going to be painful to watch, but this film is overly so. The parents seem to be totally unsuited to each other and I had the strong feeling that separating them would have been in the best interest of all involved.
The way that these self-involved parents completely ignore their children was distressing to see but this was exacerbated in my view by the way that the kid's attorney/mechanic was always doing several things at once and only giving the kid a small part of his attention. It seemed to me that both of the children could have benefited from as much attention as they could get and it seemed hurtful that the kid's advocate ignored him as much as he did.
Overall the movie was only average and while touching on uncommon thematic ground, it really brought very few new perspectives to light.
