This movie proves that these days they are making a goodly percentage of movies for TV that are better than what you see in the theater. After gasping in dismay at The Golden Bowl, A Knight's Tale, and The Tailor from Panama in the theaters, I rented this movie at Blockbuster and it was an entertaining 2 hours. My God; a story told clearly and in a consistent way!!!!
The movie is stolen by actor Riley Smith, a teenage kid who has lost his father to urban violence and is forced to move away from the big city to a more rural area with his mother. Smith is really believable and touching in the role; an actor who is leagues better than the majority of Hollywood teen heart throbs. He makes you feel his pain and his desire in this movie. One wonders why he is not in more mainstream pictures. He is surrounded by a good cast; a good script, and very straight forward direction.
Recommended for a worthwhile rental.
