Neil Patrick Harris is superb
3 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Neil Patrick Harris is simply superb as Steven, a teenager who has amnesia as the result of being in a car accident through no fault of his own with a drunk driver.

Terri Garr gives a strong performance as the stressed mother, as does Sierra Samuel as his sister, and I'm surprised she never acted again. But Randell Mell as the father just seems to drift along in the background.

It's not easy to watch at times due to the topic of the movie, but it is defiantly worthwhile watching just for Neil Patrick Harris alone.

It is not surprising that he has forged a good acting career out for himself, as he was clearly talented back then
