A collector's gem for fans of Mulroney and Taylor!
7 July 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Beautiful portrait of a young man whose innocence is so pure that he is not affected by the harsh reality around him. Mulroney radiates his sweet personality all through the movie. A collector's gem for all fans of him or the rest of the impressive cast.
