Mel Gibson directed and starred in this rites of passage movie. Gibson plays the disfigured teacher McLeod, who befriends a young and lonely boy Chuck Nastadt, and secretly provides him with tuition so that he can pass the entry exams of the military academy once attended by the boy's late father. The friendship causes gossip amongst the tightly knit community, leading to accusations of abuse against the innocent McLeod.

Nic Stahl makes his debut as Chuck Nordstadt and along the way we're sucked into the world of a young teenager trying to escape the reality of being son to a single mother with two half-sisters.
The acting is first class, first Stahl as the potty-mouthed and later passionate Chuck and then Mel as McLeod who assumes the role as tutor to the boy during one memeroable summer.
Of course there's a catch to the feel good drama, McLeod is a hideous loner who is not accepted by the community around him and it takes the slightly less predjudiced and desperation of Chuck to find out all is not as it seems.
This is one of my favourite movies in my collection, having watched it last night again I can say that is really is one of those rare movies that never loses its appeal or doesn't get worse with age. Chuck is still Chuck, you will root for him and McLeod is still admirable, witty and "more than the role on the stage he was meant to play".
Sentimental, very Stand by Me-ish but having a lot more adult themes aluded to by the review above its a classic for me and great evidence Braveheart, Apocylpto and the Patriot wouldnt of been just big budget humdinger flukes without the great direction of Gibson.
The final shot with McLeod waving back as he walks away still gets me 10/10
Known by the locals as "Hamburger Head", he's the subject of many rumors and wild stories.
Chuck is a young boy determined to get into the same military school as his father, despite his mother's protests and his half-sisters' mocking, even if it means studying all through the summer.
Desperate for a tutor, Chuck encounters the reclusive McLeod, and together they begin to help each other deal with a world that has shunned them both.......
Despite what you think about Gibson the man, you cannot deny the mans body of work as a director, and his debut, in my opinion is his greatest ever achievement. Here Gibson literally changes his while screen persona, and this is probably why it under performed at the box office, people were not ready for a serious Mel, let alone disfigured.
But despite McLeod being the source of many a scary story, he is the most humanistic, the most holistic character in the whole movie, and although for most of the first act he is the boogeyman, thanks to camera angles and long shots, the second and third act portray him superbly.
What scares the townsfolk the most about McLeod isn't the stories about him, it's the normality about him when he encounters folk, the lengths he goes to to stay away from folk, so I feel it comes as a pseudo relief to many when the Sheriff takes Chuck home from his house, their false fears have falsely been confirmed.
The performances are tremendous, and the final scene is tear-jerking.
It's a wonderful movie.
