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>

26 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was screened at the Cannes Film Festival and was met with praise from many media outlets (such as the BBC) and took home Best Feature at the Hollywood First Glance Film Festival. Who can argue with those credentials? On top of that, it does show the struggle and problems that still goes on in our own backyard. Thousands of children are left to fend for themselves in a harsh reality. Anyone that doesn't see the greatness in showing their story has their own problems. This film is a brilliant work of art and should be shown world wide. I've bought this movie and have enjoyed watching it over and over. I appreciate all the effort put in to bring this epidemic to the mainstream.
