Storyline

Runaways is Steve Moore's story. He's sixteen and lives with his younger sister, mother Cheryl and her boyfriend John, in a modest house in Bakersfield, California. An abusive and often intoxicated man, John rules the household, and though his attacks on Steve result in emergency hospital visits, Cheryl's loyalty is to her boyfriend. To protect her relationship with John, she "ditches" her son, having him arrested and locked in a correctional "mental" facility, before coercing her older brother Burt, who lives in Hollywood, to take him. Steve quickly discovers that Burt cannot even provide temporary lodging, but an administrator at his new high school directs him to a shelter for runaway kids where he soon learns to navigate his way. At the shelter which offers only a two to three month respite from the streets, counselor Tony Perez tries to provide guidance to Steve and his roommates Mike and Andy. While encouraging them to try to reconcile with their parents, he insists that they ... Written by Alexandre Chorques <chorques@hotmail.com>

A Wonderful Film
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rented this film and enjoyed it a lot. It really shows the brutal reality for some of America's youth...I would recommend it to everyone. Especially for parents with children in high school. The ability of the cast to tap their characters is amazing to watch. The synergy between the filmmaker and actors really comes out on the screen. Its great to see a film with Austin O'Brian (Last Action Hero, Apollo 13), Esteban Powell (Dazed and Confused) and Demitrius Navarro (ER and Friday). I am fans of all these talented actors and its great to see them back to work in a film that really allows them to show depth and range with a character...Definitely one of the better independent films I've seen in awhile.
