Good intention and heart, zero follow through
7 June 2017 | by solitudeapeSee all my reviews

This film stumbles at every juncture and in every single way. I watched it at an event to promote it and organizations that support the issues that this film portrays. The director, Jay Silverman, was present as well as the inspiration for the Peter Coyote character, a career therapist who runs some outdoor rehabilitation organizations. The topic is important and timely. Sadly, this film is dreadful from minute one. The story line is told in a manner as if the writers don't know the topic - though the director fashioned the movie around his daughter's experiences, so you'd assume some knowledge. The acting was horrendous with the exception of most of the scenes with the leading lady. The dialogue was a disjointed series of soundbites from PSAs it appears. The photography was dreadful. Finally, many of the events and outbursts by the characters were unmotivated and thus nearly every scene felt two-dimensional. Afterwards, the director, the therapist, and a local teen counselor spoke in a panel and felt the ignorance by Jay Silverman shown in all its glory. If you make a theme film, it is wise to actually understand the topic. I am pleased that your daughter didn't kill herself and she is now mentally well, but your film was a waste of my two hours.
