Insight and compassion...
3 August 2001 | by (Hamilton, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I came across this film quite by chance, and am glad that I took the time to watch it.

It is, I guess, as the cover describes, a "coming of age" film, but it also more than that. A teenage boy has had the nature of his mother's illness concealed from him until now, and so he begins a journey toward understanding her, and himself. One might think that a film involving mental illness would be quite grim, but I didn't find it that way at all. It was compassionate but without being overly sentimental. The subplot of the boy's boarding school life and friendships reminded me just a little of Dead Poets Society, another film I have seen and enjoyed many times.

If you are interested in mental health or know someone with a mental illness then I would definitely recommend this film.
