I thought that was Joaquin Phoenix!
6 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was channel surfing, and I started watching this episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents on the Chiller Channel. Anyway, I saw this little boy acting as one of the leads. I kept thinking he looked so familiar... His eyes looked just like Joaquin Phoenix' eyes. So I searched the episode's title, and it turned out to be Joaquin Phoenix after all. Pretty cool! He really did a pretty good job at acting back in the mid-eighties! He effectively demonstrated a cunning, manipulative and clever character who was deaf. He even cried well. I didn't know he acted as a child. I know his brother River was already established by the mid-eighties, but I didn't know Joaquin was acting then too. He did a find job in this episode.
