Top flight tearjerker!
20 August 2001 | by (Timbuk 3) – See all my reviews

I just caught this one on Lifetime the other day, and I had to admit, I was a bit skeptical...at first. I had admired the work of Chris Burke (Corky on TV's Life Goes On) for quite a number of years, but I was unsure if he would work for the character of Jonathan, the unwanted boy of the title. Let me tell you, he was amazing.

The supporting cast was uniformly excellent, but at the heart of the picture is Chris Burke, emoting far more effectively than just about any famous actor working today. (Watch out especially for touching scenes in an airplane and on a bicycle.) It's a shame this film is probably not on video, but be sure to keep an eye out for it on Lifetime. I know I most certainly will!
