excellent movie!
12 May 1999 | by rachelb-2See all my reviews

This movie is awesome i can remember the first time I saw it when I was in junior high. I instantly fell in love with William McNamara! He does a terrific job in this movie! Jodie Foster was also the perfect person for the role of Katie! Had a great story line. It's a must see!!!
