I am a student of West Montana College and ran across this TV-movie at the library. I consider myself a huge river phoenix fan and was shocked there was a part of his filmography that I had not seen.
Although, just an after-school special, his talent was obvious at even that tender age. The performances by all the young stars in the film were impressive. Leaf (Joaquin) was easily convincing as his brother (ha ha) and the performance by Stephanie Evans as his tutor, Kim Stoner, was terrific as well. The dynamic between Stephanie and River was central to the serious message conveyed by this "masterpiece." Does anyone know what happened to this young actress? She's probably on tour with Nsync somewhere!!
Anyway, this piece is a must-have for any River, Leaf or Stephanie fan.
