Cracking performances on a REAL topic
2 August 2001 | by (Nottingham, England) – See all my reviews

In an age of syndromes the reality is that we are becoming a society more and more reliant on drugs and therapy. This award-winning drama series (yet still criminally under-rated) brings to life the story of young boy, terrifyingly destructive yet passionate in his emotions. The struggle of his parents to cope with him - on or off medication - is heart-breakingly realistic. The young stars are amazing:Brooke Kinsella as the strong and dependable daughter who turns to despairing teenage self-destruction in the shadow of her brother's torment is quite astonishing to watch.

Unsurprisingly this was first aired on Channel 4 in the UK; home to so much decent drama (Psychos, Anna Karenina, North Square, GBH all got premiered there), and most of it all too quickly consigned to history. "Kid in the Corner" deserves a wide audience, especially but not exclusively from those with an interest in the fate and treatment of children diagnosed with ADD.
