effective dark independent film with powerful and moving moments
3 March 1999 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

Runaway Dreams is an unrelenting dark film, moving and at times emotionally explosive. The stand-out performance is Kathryn Erbe who plays, "Denise" the "runaway's" sister. It was written by British playwright/screenwriter John Hopkins who gave us Smiley's People and Hiroshima so it has realism and deals with the underbelly of society. Good direction; good pace; great look for the money.
