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>

Powerful and true
1 November 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was invited to a private screening of "Runaways" and I have to tell you, I was moved. The movie puts you in the situation of being on the streets. The cast was wonderful. Austin O'Brien was very believable and Demetrius Navarro was powerful. When Demetrius is on the phone trying to make his mother see the truth about her abusive boyfriend, it made me cry. The character Esteban Powell portrayed was a good example of what can happen when people just don't care. This is the type of movie that everyone should see, because it shows us that the issue of runaways is one that can be prevented. My applause to the director for his vision and ability to tell this story. I love this movie, because it's real.
