At the beginning of the movie, when Katie and Billy jump into grandmother's pool, they approach the pool from the narrow, short side. Later in the movie, when Billy returns to the pool, he makes the same approach, but the pool has flipped a quarter of a turn. He is now looking at the wide side of the pool. See more »

Quotes

Katie Chandler: See that's all I want to do Billy-Boy. I want to leap of this pier and fly high in the air with hang with the wind and drift through the clouds, and at night, with the Moon full and the sea wild, I meet my lover high on a cliff and we'd swoop down into the ocean and swim all the way touch the bottom up through the dark water and break the surface. Then we'd fly to Jamaica for Pina Colatas... God, I wish I could do that.

Best Drama Ever !
15 February 2003 | by (Gavle, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Tjoho !

Stealing Home was the first real Drama I ever watched in my life.

Still after 14 years it's my favorite movie and I'm still cry out when I watch the movie.

It's a really sensitive movie that'll touch you deep inside with it's warm and gently touch of love and sad pain.

I give it 10/10, one of a kind stand alone movie !
