memorable film.
26 December 2011 | by (dorset) – See all my reviews

I watched this film years ago when i was a teenage.

The film is definitely memorable.

Daniel Newman was VERY convincing.

Would like to see the film again.

I definitely think it should be released on DVD.

or at least repeated on TV again.

It is very hard hitting in parts.

Shocking to think that anyone of 15 could go through something so bad as to take their own life,

if you like watching true to life films this is definitely one for the scrapbook.
