A forgotten little gem
6 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Considering this film was released in 1995 it is very likely that, after its middle-of-the-night airing on British TV in 2003, a handful of extra filmbuffs may finally have had the pleasure of finally seeing this miniature gem.

All the way through I was moved by the compelling story and superbly (understated) subtle acting. I'd not realised before that Treat Williams is a good character actor, while his young co-star, Mia Kirshner, stole the film. I'd not heard of her before but boy she can act.

All I wish to say about this film is, if you have the chance to see it - do so. This is not a movie you'll forget in a hurry.
