I just finished watching this 1993 TV movie via Amazon Prime. I have never felt compelled to write a movie review until now. Daniel Newman was absolutely phenomenal. Despite my 48 years of movie viewing, I can only recall being so thoroughly absorbed in and emotionally moved by one other actor (Emily Watson - Breaking the Waves). I cannot believe his acting career ended in 2009, though I imagine doing anything for nineteen years is commendable. I highly recommend this movie, not only for highlighting the complexities and barriers to helping at-risk youth, but also because Daniel's performance was deeply affecting. If I failed to mention the supporting actors vital contribution to the film, I would be remiss.
