"Song for a Raggy Boy" is based on the true story of a single teacher's courage to stand up against an untouchable prefect's sadistic disciplinary regime and other abuse in a Catholic Reformatory and Industrial School in 1939 Ireland.
A destitute 14-year-old struggles to keep his life together despite harsh abuse at his mother's hands, harsher abuse at his father's, and a growing separation from his slightly older brother. Petty thefts for food grow into more major takes until he steals a cash box from the diner where he works. Although Joe uses the money to pay off some of his father's debts and to replace his mother's records that his father smashed in a fit of temper, Joe gets no thanks. Written by

First I have to tell you that I am a big SciFi/Action film fan. This
is so good it transcends your own personal tastes and glues you to your
you remain mesmerized until the end.
The only weak link in this movie is the choice of Val Kilmer as Joe's
father. His performance is good, but it is weak compared to the
depth the other actors give their characters. Why? Val has to outperform
"baggage" which he almost does (in my opinion) but not effectively enough
make this movie a 10. (I voted 9)
"Joe the King" is a great movie. Perceptive accurate directing *and*
by Mr. Frank Whaley. There is no screen. There is no you, only the
characters you are watching - their lives flow past you like a melancholy
melody leaving you alone as a spectator like the proverbial "fly on the
wall." You disappear into the film - there is no higher
Young Mr. Peter Tambakis does a stellar performance who is incredibly
at acting beyond his age. He is the central character who must be good to
pull off the whole movie. He does it so easily that you are amazed that
is only 14 and not an achieved experienced actor of 65.
Another amazing thing about this movie is that the bit players, e.g. the
police, are utterly relaxed (not stiff) and perform as if this is just
another day in their job. They leave you feeling that you are watching a
documentary and not a fiction. This is a direct indication of the great
Incredible movie, no - incredible film. It will leave you introspective
about your own life. What a blessing. What a film.
