Brilliant portrayal of a mentally retarded girl by 17-year-old Heather Matarazzo
24 May 2001 | by (La Rioja, Spain) – See all my reviews

Despite being `only' a telefilm, which in itself is usually a guider to something rather stylised to set patterns and formulas, whatever the content may be, `Our Guys' turns out to be something rather special. It is not due to the supporting cast: they did their job well, even very well; It is not even due to the director, Guy Ferland or even Paul Brown's adaptation of the book by Bernie Lefkowitz: again well carried out. What does make this telefilm stand out is the then seventeen-year-old Heather Matarazzo. Her interpretation of a somewhat backward adolescent was simply brilliant. Showing immense intelligence she was able to keep her performance under control as it was never overdramatized; from joyousness to deep grief and all the other feelings that can be shown on screen, Matarazzo, with Ferland's equally intelligent directing, gave a superbly convincing interpretation without the slightest hint of ridiculising the personality and character of any person who may be unfortunate enough to be mentally retarded. Almost an impossible rôle, but this young actress showed great maturity at such a young age. I hope a few more of her films reach us here in this corner of Europe.
