Corey Feldman is superb
16 October 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

this film stars Corey Feldman as a troubled youth on drugs and has to over come his addiction. Corey Feldman is very good giving a brilliant performance as the troubled youth. I can't believe he hasn't won an academy award yet
