Brillantly acted though depressing TV-Movie
31 October 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film tells the story of a deeply troubled Teen Jimmy who is emotionally and mentally unstable, so much so that he Kills himself with a gun to the head while his family is in Church. the acting by Meredith Baxter and Bruce Davison is wonderful you really feel for them as well as the two younger children. JimmY's family were not aware of his problems which made it even worse for them when he died. The film portrays from the 'survivors' point of view who have to go on living without a precious loved one - The mother (Baxter) deals with her grief by bottling it up inside eventually alienating herself from her husband and younger children, The parents marrage suffers and so do the children as a result.

I believe this movie was shown in American High Schools to show the effects of suicide on the rest of the family

It's not laugh a minute as you can probably tell, but it is a wonderfully acted but sad tale of a family tearing itself apart following the death of a Teenage son.

7/10 (better than average TV Movie)
