Absolutely Heartwarming and Charming, a TV Masterpiece
10 February 2003 | by (Santa Fe, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I admit it, movies about disabled people drive me absolutely crazy. While watching films such as "i am sam" or "Tru Confessions" I feel an overwhelming amount of sympathy for the disabled character. What makes these movies even more unbearable, is the discrimination these characters face in the real world. Now, as unbearable as they are to me, I feel I should note that these movies are priceless treasures. "Tru Confessions" Rates as one of the only 10 movies that has ever made me cry. Shia Labeouf plays the tender role of Eddie the disabled little brother of Tru, a girl trying to figure out her life in the middle of parents who won't listen or don't care and a little brother she is forced to defend and watch out for. This is a great example of powerful acting and a driving story. Shia, my man, excellent work. I haven't seen this kind of acting from a young man your age since...I can't remember. Clara Bryant, excellent work also.

Watch for this film. I think we all know Disney's replay reputation, I'm sure you'll run into it at some point.
