A movie designed for teens indeed, but perhaps a bit too sure it will appeal to teens. The acting is taken to extremes, and the forcefulness of the whole production makes me feel like the film desperately wants my attention, and I feel like, ok, you have it, but that doesn't mean it's a good movie.
This is one of three 30 minute films released together as part of Family Theater's "Manifest Mystery" series which relates a mystery of the Rosary to a story of a modern-day teen and his or her problems. In this one, the crowning of Jesus with thorns is supposed to be connected with a troubled teen with an alcoholic father and a sister that just wants everyone to be happy. The connection is tenuous at best, mostly connected to the final scene.
I applaud all involved for trying. It's a valiant effort, and hopefully will lead to improved films in the future.
