It was a movie of the week (what else can I say?)
8 February 1999 | by (WA) – See all my reviews

A loving couple adopts two children, both who are seemingly sweet but just a little bit odd. The younger boy, Eric, seems quiet, withdrawn and just sort of walks around in a daze all've the time. The older girl, Catherine or "Cat", seems nice and helpful, but every now and then she has these...mood swings. Nobody can explain them, but suddenly Cat is constantly tearing apart the house, beating her brother, sticking the dog with needles, threatening to kill her parents, and on and on. Her mother and father are desperate to find somebody who can explain this "rage" that comes upon Cat. Finally, they somewhat succeed by confronting her mother (why she wasn't with her kids or in jail though is beyond me)and by seeking a psychiatrist. Nevertheless, Cat's rage "rages" on and causes the family much struggle. Interesting, if you like to see little kids run around and scream. It's nice how they happened to choose a name that perfectly rhymed with "brat."
