Brother's Relationship is Auththentic and well told
23 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The relationship between Lance (Brad Hunt) and Lucas (Louis Herthum) reminded me of the dynamics in my own family. Hunt is amazing as he portrays the heroine addicted younger brother of Herthum. The conflict between the brothers is very real and in the end heartwarming and moving. I think this is a movie for the whole family to see. This is a prodigal son story well told! If you can't find it at your local Blockbuster ask them to get it. If more youth groups, boys and girls clubs or families sat down to watch this one together they might find a way to help kids on drugs and create a better understand of one another. This is one worth watching.
