Some Unfinished and Weak Writing Dampens this tale!
9 June 2011 | by SylSee all my reviews

I love Jane Alexander but she was truly underused in this film. Penelope Ann Miller is great as the grieving war widow, Harriet. Kevin Anderson shines as Charlie, the mentally challenged farmhand who lives like an animal and is abused by old man Grissel played very well by veteran actor Leo Burmeister. They all live in Marlboro, New York in farm country away from the city. Tomboy Carrie Ann and her younger brother Brian are friends with Zeke and Elijah, two neighborhood boys. They have a club which berates and abuses Charlie's character most of all. Everybody but Harriet treats him with abuse even the kids. Despite it all, I felt the kids didn't learn their lesson about it in this film. I wished that this film provided a better lesson regarding bullying and the consequences of it all. Without spoiling the plot, Kevin Anderson is completely unrecognizable in this performance which is a compliment to him. He really shines as Charlie though. I felt the ending was a bit off and that's it without giving away. Some viewers might find this movie to be a useful example about bullying people and how devastating consequences can be if nobody speaks up in the first place.
