Christopher Reeve is Terrifying!
6 December 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

This film is about pedophilia and well-done for the time. The first rate cast includes Meredith Baxter Birney as a single mother and alcoholic whose young son is kidnapped by a pedophile played eerily well by Christopher Reeve in one of his dramatic performances. We know him better from his Superman films and "Remains of the Day." Sadly before his accident, he was truly a gifted actor and is missed today. In this film, we have appearances by Shirley Knight as the friend who tries to help the mother out and the boy's time is running out before he's abused by the pedophile. The story is set in New York City but is filmed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
