The teen ager
24 February 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Dr. Weston has had experience treating teen agers before. We all remember his sessions with Sophie, the troubled girl that came to him after her accident. Now, another troubled youth, Jesse arrives at his office for treatment. As the chapter begins, we see Paul sitting in his kitchen reading a publication in which there is an ad for an appearance of Gina Toll in a local venue.

As Paul answers the door, Jesse practically assaults him with his camera. Jesse has become addicted to photography. As the session begins Paul feels it is distracting for the young man to have the camera outside. Jesse volunteers to show him the pictures he has taken. The last one is of Josh and Raif, two gay lovers that have become friendly toward Jesse, who professes he is homosexual, as well.

Jesse is disruptive. He does not want to volunteer anything of importance. At one time he takes out his cell phone and plays a call he got from a woman who claims she is her biological mother. Jesse's disregard for his parents is something of concern for the doctor. In fact, he refers to his mother as a crack headed prostitute. His father, according to his moods change professions without making much sense. It is clear this will be a tough case for Paul.

Paris Barclay directed the episode with his usual sensitivity and eye for detail. The screenplay is by Sarah Treem, a frequent collaborator for the series. Since we have not seen the Israeli program that is the model for "In Treatment" we cannot make an assessment of how the American version mirrors the themes depicted in the original series, or whether the characters of this version differ from their fictional counterparts. We, as viewers can consider ourselves lucky to the creators of "In Treatment" for giving American audiences a chance to see interesting adult subjects that are so rare in the land of television.

Gabriel Byrne is wonderful, as usual. James DeHaan does excellent work for Mr. Barclay.
