Storyline

Fifteen-year-old Deena Marten wants the same freedom every teenager craves. But when she can't have her way, her rebellious temperament erupts in violence. Her parents, Stephanie and Todd, fear her new boyfriend, Garret, 17, is the cause. Distraught, Stephanie turns to alcohol, and Todd escapes in his work. They're unaware their Boy Scout son Adam, 13, sips from a vodka bottle hidden in his bedroom. And the problems in this dysfunctional family continue to worsen.

Quotes

[the police and the investigators has arrived and find out what happened, the people all over town find out what's going on. This is a major chaos]
Todd Marten: I don't know what we're do. We tried everything. She's out of control, she breaks things, she hits her mother.
Police Officer: May I have your hand?
Todd Marten: Uh, that was an accident. Look, if you can just get that knife away from her, calm her down, I'm sure we can.

PRETTY GOOD TV MOVIE
1 September 2001 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

As far as t. v. made movies go this gets a B+. Hilary Swank better known for her role in "The Next Karate Kid" plays an abusive teen who starts to violently hit her parents when she gets real angry, through all the fighting and her dating a delinquent the violence turns into an authority involvement. Joanna Kerns (Growing Pains) plays her alcoholic mother who can't seem to control her daughter or keep a punishment, she's believable but tries too much. I'm not saying it's the best but I would see it as often as it may come on.
