When sheriff Barnum investigates the death of an elderly rural resident, he discovers a teenage grandson living in the basement. Raised by his grandparents, he has experienced the world only through books, never leaving the family farm. He is sent to a state home for boys where he has trouble fitting in socially. His odd appearance and unusual abilities cause the small town residents to fear and ridicule him. However, not all are afraid. Some begin to view his potential and gifts with wonderment.Written by

In the very first scene, the ambulance has a headlight out on the driver's side as the vehicle is driving towards you. When the scene shifts to the ambulance pulling up in front of the hospital, the headlight is out on the passenger's side of the vehicle. See more »
She didn't go some place... your wife. I felt her go. Not away, just out... everywhere.

The real credit has to go to both Sean Patrick Flanery and Lance Henriksen, they both succeeded in making their characters be both believable and human.
When I first heard of this film, my first reaction was "wouldn't watch it if you paid me", the reason for this was Mary Steenburgen that woman plays the same character in every movie, although I have to say she was good in this, but the real credit has to go to both Sean Patrick Flanery and Lance Henriksen, they both succeeded in making their characters be both believable and human. Everyone should watch this film at least once, it's sweet without being nauseating and for once America hasn't ruined it by putting on a "they all fell in love, got married, popped rugrats and everyone lived happily ever after" ending.
