Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Performed to the hilt by Flanery and filmed with conviction by Victor Salva, the movie is finally too solemn to survive its pushy musical strings.
I didn't buy this from iTunes, but I have seen this movie more than a few times and it is a very powerful movie exposing how people are so quick to judge others just on their looks. This is probably one of the best movies I've ever seen. I highly recomend that every one purchases or at the very least watch this very inspirational movie.
This is a movie of emotional depth and character. It illustrates the fear that people experience as a result of people being different. Great movie. Check it out.
Special, a must see
A story about coping with the fears, intolerance, and explotation of a child who is different on many levels from others. This movie's technical flaws are minor, and easily forgotten as you get lost in the story. I became attached to the main character ("Powder"), since I could relate to many of the experiences, being somewhat different myself. The story line is excellent, as is the performances of even the most minor of characters.
