Did You Know?

Goofs

The policemen and the Volvo police car in the scene when Alex is almost apprehended while living in Sweden are done in a completely American style, the policemen in green uniforms and the police car beautifully designed exactly like it could have looked in lots of American counties, green with the word POLICE and the coat of arms of the county. The Swedish word for police ("polis") has been used, so it's really been imaginatively done. However, neither the policemen nor the car looks anything like they would have done in Sweden for real. Swedish police uniforms are blue, and police cars are basically white with blue and yellow stripes and the word "polis" in blue. And they only have blue flashlights on the roof, not blue and red like in the US. See more »

Could have been better
1 March 2001 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a TV-movie based on a true story in the eighties. Alex Kelly is an athlete from a welthy family, who is going to be famous because he rapes a girl after a party. Just a day before the trial he runs away to Europe, hoping that no one can find him. He meets this Swedish girl, goes to Sweden with her and everything seems to be o.k. for him, but then Interpol tracks him down, and he realises that the best thing he could do is to go home before he will be arrested.

For a TV-movie it's not that bad, but it could have been a lot better with a bigger budget. Nice acting although by Cassidy Rae and Matthew Settle.
