For fans of Jason Behr-A MUST SEE!
29 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is unusual in the way that it has an all-male cast.

That aspect of the movie drives the mood and intensity from beginning to end.

I thought the father's (Dean Stockwell) turn-around in feelings to be genuinely believable as the film's events cause him to re-evaluate what and who are most important in his life.

James Remar delivers a wonderfully increasingly sinister performance in this film. Although we've seen him in so many roles. He normally doesn't have a character as expanded as this and you get to see what he's really capable of.

And lastly, but not leastly, Jason Behr shines as poor confused and bereft Campbell. He's made so many poor decisions, and yet you just want to put your arms around him and say that everything will be all right.

If you thought Max Evans (Roswell) would always be your favorite character for Jason Behr, Campbell will make you think twice.

This movie is definately a drama. If you are looking for something light and funny, save this movie for another night. If the big box office movies have been leaving you flat lately, this independent movie is a good one to restore your faith that great acting-not a big budget-is what makes a movie really good.
