Quotes

Andrew: [tells Gail about his revelations after the kidnapping, sobs] We never stayed at the same place for long. We always moved around, mostly motels. The last place we lived - the one we stayed the longest - was a trailer. He wouldn't let me go outside during the day; I just stayed in the room watching TV. I didn't go to school, I didn't know any kids my age. There was just daddy, her, and me. Pattie, she - she hit me. He locked me in the closet. At night, they would put me outside on a long leash.

An emotional rollercoaster
11 December 2000 | by (Los Angeles, California, USA) – See all my reviews

I hadn't planned on viewing this film. I had been watching the program before it and simply didn't turn the television off or change the channel. After about 15 minutes into it, I was pulled into the strong story. The film was thoroughly engrossing and the performances, especially that of young Seth Adkins, were superb. I found myself in tears throughout the film and the ending caused me to completely break down. I can't recommend this film enough. Next time it's on, please don't miss it.
