About the Movie

In 1995, Director Steve James (Hoop Dream) returned to rural Southern Illinois to reconnect with Stevie Fielding, a troubled young boy he had been an Advocate Big Brother to ten years earlier. He began a film to discover the forces that had shaped Stevie's entire life. Part way through the filming, Stevie is arrested and charged with a serious crime that tears his family apart. What was to be a modest profile turns into an intimate four and a half year chronicle of Stevie, his broken family, the criminal justice system and the filmmaker himself, as they all struggle with what Stevie has done and who he has become.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If James and his crew can spend years with these blighted souls, surely you can spend two hours with them, exploring compassion's outer limits. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Of course, James is exploiting Stevie, but the peculiar power of this film lies in James' indirect acknowledgment of it and his hope that his film has some point and value. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Feb 24, 2007

Fresh: Stevie is a fascinating, irritating movie, with a portrait of a hopelessly troubled young man at its center. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A powerful chronicle of a human life. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008
