I Did not Understand the Conclusion
25 March 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Charles Underhill (William Shatner) lives in the suburb with his wife and their five year-old son Steve (Keith Dutson), but he does not allow Steve to go to play in the nearby playground with other children. Charles has a childhood trauma with the bully Ralph (Mirko Malish) and his friends, and he frequently sees his ghost challenging him, until the day he decides to go to the playground with Steve and face the wounds of his past.

I did not understand the conclusion of this intriguing episode. The story has a promising beginning, it is well developed but I was completely disappointed with the weird open conclusion. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "The Playground"
