This movie will carry you through many emotions, and most will be painful...even down right depressing. Fleiss plays his part perfectly.
His facial expressions and body language can make you laugh in one moment; make you want to cry in the next.
Joe the King is a tale of a young lad virtually abandoned by society and family. The father (Val Kilmer) is an abusive, alcoholic; the mother is a passive female who allows the abuse. In essence, she has given up.
The older brother is in the same mess. All he has going for him is the fact that he is a year older, and is, perhaps, more attractive. Joe, for the most part, seems more like a little hobo.
Near the end of the film, something happens that makes you stop and pay attention, and look at your own life, because sometimes you only get one chance.

This is a very moving drama of a fourteen year old boy in a rather dysfunctional home. So dsyfunctinal in fact that his mother suggests a way out for her son to a judge which most parents would never consider but she feels that she has lost the run of his life and is unable to cope with him. The sad thing is that no one really bothers to ask him why he is always late for school, falls asleep, steal things etc. He is just guilty and not worth redeeming. It is all for his father and mother's sake but even they don't see it - and possibly don't care. Particularly the father who is unfortunately very well acted and portrays the sort of loser that rear their offspring for prison.

Joe Henry is terribly well acted. Very convincing and you can only feel pity for him even though he shouldn't evoke any good feelings from the viewer as he is just some scruffy kid we pass on the streets every day and just don't see. Or care about.

It's not a feel good film by any means but a true to life film. Joe Henry's are everywhere and nowhere. Unseen until they are adults when it is too late to do anything.
