Storyline

Ryan Kazinski, 16, is in juvenile detention in Fort Myers, Florida. He gets away one day, and the world is all before him: where should he go, what should he do? Should he try to find his mom? Should he head for Colorado, where he's daydreamed about life in the woods. He has a younger brother, so under cover of night, Ryan visits him. At night, Ryan is on the streets where there are other youth at loose ends, including one who wants Ryan to help with a burglary. The police are looking for him as well. Where might a 16-year-old of limited experience, with no money, imagine he could be safe? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Like the main character, the film goes nowhere
30 March 2000 | by (Edmond, OK) – See all my reviews

TRANS begins very promising, with an unusually natural acting style and equally unusual cinematography. With a documentary feel, we follow the adventures of a boy escaped from a juvenile detention center. His encounters are interesting and believable, but after about 80 minutes or so, the story just stops. What happens to the boy? We'll never know. Maybe we're not supposed to know. However, good storytelling involves a beginning, a middle, and an end. This film has no end, and therefore no story arc. This is a good first two acts of a film, but without a third act, there is no film.
