1.0 out of 5 stars horrible quality 7 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This must be the worst DVD release ever. I owned this on VHS and after more than 20 years, the VHS tape still looks better than this DVD release. How any company dares to release movies in such horrible quality is beyond understanding!

3.0 out of 5 stars A tough topic,well dealt with. 24 Nov 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film deals with a topic that still makes people uncomfortable: suicide.
It deals with the topic in an honest way,showing the impact that a suicide has on a wide circle of people,as well as the sense of shame and stigma that surrounds the people left behind. The lead character is Skip,played by Chad Lowe. The film shows events leading up to,and after his suicide. There is denial that what he did was in fact a suicide. His mother (played so well by Mariette Hartley) decides to find out the truth,no matter how painful that might be.
The film is not always easy to watch,particularly a scene where Skip's sister reaches breaking-point after all the denial and speculation. It is a film that I would recommend for screening at schools, possibly followed by a discussion about the themes touched on here. The film avoids shying away from reality,and avoids becoming overly sentimental. A well-made movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars old but verry good 26 Mar 2010
This movie is a great old drama.
The suiside of the son is not on its own, it affects the whole family and even his best friend.
It lets us see what happens with them in great detail.
the quality is not verry good, but its worth to see.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty powerful film 17 Oct 2001
By Alucard - Published on
I saw this film in health class during the depression unit. I really don't know why I'm reviewing it, but I'll say it's a heavy movie that deals with the aftermath of teen suicide. Suicide is never an easy topic to talk about with your family or friends, and hopefully, you'll never have to experiance it. I still haven't experianced one in my life yet, but I hope that I never have too. Anyway, back to the film.
Skip (Michael), the film's victim, is having a hard time. His SAT grades were low, he feels negelected by his peers, and he was shut down by his dreamgirl. So, one night, he couldn't take it anymore, and he drove his car off a steep cliff. The film then delves into the aftermath of his parents, his sister, and his best friend.
The acting isn't perfect, but it's powerful enough to truly get a message across to it's viewers. The ending scene, with his mother standing on the cliff's edge telling the viewers that "It's better to live" is truly affecting, and left half the class in or on the breaking point of tears.
If you need a movie to talk to your kids or family to about the topic of suicide and see how it affects the victim's family and friends, this is the film to get. Even for an old 80's film, It's heavy, powerful and truly gets a message across to it's viewer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking and Heartfelt 22 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Suicide is not an easy subject and this movie was able to focus not only on why a person would commit suicide but also on how easy it is to miss how much pain a person could be in so that they would contemplate or commit suicide. I liked this movie because it examined the various reactions and rationales that people go through when they come face to face with the suicide of a family member or a friend. While the plot and some of the acting appeared to be a little on the superficial side, it was an honest appraisal of a difficult and always timly subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Important Film for Teens 28 Mar 2003
By Sandi Strehlau - Published on
I think this was an AfterSchool Special when I saw it in the 80's. Very Powerful. Charlie Sheen is super! Chad Lowe is amazing! Even the Goofy girl that played the sister is great!
I saw this recently on DVD and it brought back all the same teenage angst I experienced in the 80's when I viewed this flick the first time. It's important to talk about suicide...this film is a good reminder.
5.0 out of 5 stars CHAD LOWE 4 April 2014

Chad Lowe out does his tv series in this for him alone. His performance here is a WOW and he does a WOW of a job here. All his other movies are nothing and this is a great movie if only the only good one for him.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bring back memoris 7 Feb 2007
By Thiago Macedo - Published on
Teen suicide, one of the hot-button issues of the 1980s, is the sensitive subject of this made-for-TV movie. Mariette Hartley plays a mother going through a painful, protracted divorce who realizes too late the effect it's having on her troubled son (Chad Lowe). Other on-the-brink young actors who appear in this 1984 film include a pre-Platoon Charlie Sheen and Sherilyn Fenn (six years before "Twin Peaks").
