Storyline

An abandoned teen jumps a freight train in Philadelphia intent on reaching his uncle in Indiana, whom he believes will help him with financial difficulties including a pregnant girlfriend. In Ohio, he meets another homeless teen, who escorts him to his uncle. Finding his uncle equally broke, the duo head on to Oklahoma City to try to find the first teen's long-gone ex-con father. A confrontation between father and son send the duo on into exploits in the west including getting beaten up, busting into an Indian reservation church, and hitch-hiking with a beautiful nurse.

Engaging Story
17 October 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The Dream Catcher is a refreshing film with an engaging story.

A movie about two run-away teenagers traveling across the country to catch their dream and the interesting people they meet along the way, "The Dream Catcher" also takes the viewers on this engrossing journey.

The dialog and acting make you care about the runaways. Their characters are believable and their stories are compelling. I couldn't help but pay careful attention to everything that went on in the movie and hope that all would go well for the teenagers.

I particularly liked the fact that the film is not sleazy, gory and violent or any other factors one usually sees in today's films.

Are the teenagers able to catch their dreams? Well, it's worth watching the movie to find out!
