Product Description

After constant fights, detentions, and suspensions from high school, Charlie Proud (Kevin Zegars) is heading in one direction: a prison sentence. However, a disciplinary meeting between Charlie's parents and the headmaster Dewitt (James Caan) convinces the head that if he can remove the boy from the bad influences of both the local gangs and his dysfunctional family, there may yet be a future for Charlie. Forced to work for the elderly and eccentric Mrs Ritchie (Gena Rowlands), the pensioner he robbed, Charlie slowly learns to respect his victim. Conflicted by the love and kindness he sees in Mrs Ritchie's family, Charlie is forced to deal with the dark secrets of his own life as well as the destructive influence of his gang mates.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are wondering why the awful cheap front sleeve for this dvd, if you decide on buying it, you will find out.
The image is awful and the screen ratio is wrong. This is why James Caan and Gena Rowlands look so freakish on the front cover.
I honestly can't understand how a movie with two legendary Oscar-nominated actors ends up being distributed so sloppy.
