a very good tv movie that deals with the issues of suicide
20 October 2002 | by Sunshine14clrSee all my reviews

this movie is about the all american family with the perfect kids.jimmy is the all round athletic boy who seems to be really troubled. his parents don't ever seem to notice. from the beginning of the movie, it was very clear that this kid had some serious emotional problems. for example, stopping his car in the woods and crying. that was just really sad. some kids believe suicide is the only way out of their problems. ITS NOT!! the movie deals with the ther trials and tribulations a family has to deal with when suicide happens. i reccomend this for teens (like myself)to watch because teens are very vulnerable to to the "good idea" of suicide. this movie will make someone who is thinking about it change their mind. just rememember if you change your mind after it is done, ther is no turning back. all in all ******** out of **********
