Storyline

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquility with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual.There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, The Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time. Written by Riding Hood Motion Pictures

A Perfect Compliment to the 80's w Dynamic Characterization
13 November 2014 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The Toy Soldiers is an incredible film that progressively builds in a nearly effortless way. From start to finish, the cast delivers epic performances leading to the ultimate crescendo: an ending like no other.

The film is precise in resonating with the true essence of the time period and authentically portrays pervasive themes of the 1980's while illustrating the ties that bind individuals, families, and friends.

This was my first introduction to several cast members but their performances and portrayals were outstanding nonetheless. I experienced MANY emotions during the viewing, which I consider a great feat for the ensemble because great films are known to make one cry and laugh all at the same time. In this specific case, I did both.
