This is a slow and generally ponderous drama with a depressing mood. The acting is ok, but it is wasted on a story that goes nowhere fast and takes you to where you already knew it was going. I paid two bucks to see this movie and got ripped off.
Jamie Bell of Billy Elliot fame stars as Chris Munn, a rural teenager living a rough life with his father, John, (Dermot Mulroney) and little brother, Tim (Devon Alan) when John’s paroled brother, Deel, shows up. This family falls just a little short of the ideal and soon the two boys are on the run with family problems hot on their trail.
Not much to recommend this one. If its on TV and you have no dishes to do, I guess it might be worth it. If you watch the first twenty minutes and are not interested, give it up. It doesn’t get much better.
