Quotes

Dr. Charles Loftis: We used to say it took a year. Remember? A year to put a kid right. Sure, that just happened to be what the insurance covered. But now they cut it back to two, three months, and presto! we cure them in two or three months.

A lost gem...
14 February 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

My mom worked in a mental ward for teenagers, and this movie captures that environment very well (the writer either worked in one or did his research). Amy Locaine is so sweet and screwed up at the same time. Mr. Beasty Boy does a good job as the confused protag, and I especially like how the story and filmmarkers don't judge these kids with speeches about morals from the adult characters -- but instead ask hard questions like: "What do you want [in your life]?" Sutherland is great in his role and totally believable. Worth a rent or watching on cable. Too bad this movie didn't get more attention.
