Better Than Average TV Movie
2 October 2002 | by (Westcliff-On-Sea, Essex, England) – See all my reviews

I usually approach tv movies with trepidation, but a short while into this I found I needn't have worried.

A good script, some neat direction ( particularly a scene towards the end where Kenny receives a visit from his mother, which was reminiscent of Harry Dean Stanton and Nastassja Kinski in Paris, Texas ), a better than average performance from Kate Jackson and an exceptionally controlled and executed performance from the underrated Chad Allen, made me stop second guessing. I just sat back and enjoyed going along for the ride.

No emotionally charged histrionics on display here. Just a well structured movie that gives the subject matter the thoughtful treatment it deserves. Well worth the watch.
