Surprisingly good
26 January 2004 | by (University City, Missouri) – See all my reviews

I saw this in the video store and was intrigued by what the story was supposed to be. Rented it and watched it last night. It was surprisingly good, somewhat similar to, if you will, "This Boy's Life" with Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio. If you pay attention, you'll see that there are quite a few things going on in this movie. The character's interactions all seem very true-to-life. This is a story which involves you and makes you think about how things were in the setting and times of this story, and about how people relate to each other, their relatives, and their friends. You can't help but empathize with the effervescence and optimism of youth, and you also get to see the pitfalls when the hopes and dreams of youth are not realized. Fortunately, you also get to see that the events that take place in life don't necessarily have to be linear, and there can be many twists and turns in the road. Very much worthwhile to watch. It's classified as a "family" movie, but it's probably not for the very young children (less than 12). This isn't Oscar stuff, but I still give it 3 out of 4 for the fact that it involves you and the story content.
