In one of the first scenes, set in 1985, the record store owner recommended Bart to listen to U2's "The Joshua Tree" cassette. The Joshua Tree was not released until 1987. Later in the movie, Bart had a different U2 tape, Boy, which he asked his mother to play. See more »

This movie was so good that I HAD to review it. I have never had any other movie reach so far down into my soul. Truth is far deeper than fiction. This true story will grab ahold of your heart and soul and shake you to the core! Have you ever seen a 6'3" 280 lb giant man sobbing at a movie? I have. And I was sobbing right along with him. You will be SO glad you watched this movie
