moving teenage dilemma
20 March 2001 | by davekteenageSee all my reviews

this is one of my all-time favorite TV movies. Kay Lenz and Joseph Bottoms are at their best. Bottoms plays a teenage motorcycle mechanic who must come to terms with both his own adoption and the adoption of his soon to be born son. His fight for custody isolates him until eventually he must begin to realize his own place in the world. This is a sad movie with some beautiful moments...the last five minutes are particularly moving as Bottoms takes a long walk, pondering his fate. This movie was never released onto video, as far as I Know.
