An Exciting Teen Drama!
8 January 2002 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

On The Edge Of Innocence is an exciting teen drama TV Movie. It's definitely different to your usual 'teen movies' out there. The movie is about two teenagers, Zoe and Jake who both get sent to a psychiatric hospital. They didn't know each-other before, but once they meet and get to know each-other, they eventually fall in love. The only thing is they are not allowed to be together, so together with three other patients at the hospital, they run away from the hospital, on to a 'road trip'. On The Edge Of Innocence features a good cast, including James Marsden (He looks a little different here.) and Kellie Martin who all give good performances here. This is a good movie and I recommend it.
