Respect for differences/ everybody wins
22 September 2013 | by (United States, New York) – See all my reviews

A highly underrated movie. I absolutely loved it. I would have given it a ten, but I didn't care for the cringe-worthy, moaning song at the end, although I do understand the intent.

Jon Seda is the lost boy, a rough survivor. life hasn't been kind to him. Woody Harrelson, is the all knowing, polished, college educated doctor, who has his own secret. Two different worlds come together. Each learn something from each other, and come to respect one another. I also enjoyed the reference to Tupac's Keep Ya Head Up.

The movie contains a message for today's youth, and for the adults, for people of different races, from different socio-economic backgrounds, and different points-of-view. After the good doctor spent a whole day with this kid from hell, the doctor came to face some of his own devils. It's personal and soul searching depth may make some uncomfortable. Not everyone wants to look own into the depths of their own soul.
