The Movie Was Excellent
24 September 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The movie was excellent, alot like the book Runaway: Diary of a Street Kid. The movie had alot to offer, and it has alook of what society is really like. Group Homes being on the streets and having to do whatever to survive. Evelyn Lau (Sandra Oh) Is certainly a great actress she certainly looked and acted like the real Evelyn Lau. The movie was simply fantastic, it had emotion and sprit of a girl running away from a nightmare environment, to try to find her true path. And she ended up getting into alot of trouble, but she turned out to be a real hero in the end. I give this movie 10/10 for it's wonderful performance.
