Another good little drama from WonderWorks
12 November 1998 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

A story about the onset of schizophrenia in a teenager and the impact on his sister.

Patricia Arquette gives a fine performance, by far the best from her that I've ever seen. She's so animated! So what happened to her? Beginner's luck this time out? Did she later on just get really self-conscious about her crooked teeth? Anyway, she's not a liability here by any means, far from it.

An added plus: The other kids at school are given more detail and definition than was absolutely required by the family-centred story.
