Powerful drama sure to lift your heart.
27 December 1998 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

The story of Henry and Verlin is one that is filled with emotion. Keegan MacIntosh's performance as Verlin, a young boy who does not speak and is emotionally disturbed, is brilliant as well as the rest of the cast. Certainly a movie worth seeing.
