very good, a bit creepy
19 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

The movie starts out very sweet, with Kate Jackson's character happy that her son returned home from jail where he's been for 2 years. Her son gets a job, and works very hard. The first half of the movie shows the loving side of the family. `Kenny' the son seems very loving toward his mother, and shows a very tender side. Chad Allen does a very good job portraying Kenny. The character evolves during the second half of the movie, and `Kenny,' shows a darker side that he's hidden from his family. At that point it gets a little creepy. Kate's character tries to protect her son, and herself from who Kenny really is. The movie does a good job of showing a mother trying the best she can with what she has, but still falling short of the perfection she can never reach, and that no matter how hard you try, there are some things that you just can't control.
