Audience Reviews for Miles from Home

Very well produced gritty film that highlights the life of a street kid forced into an adult life by his mothers addiction Graphic language, sexual tones. Not for childen, yet I think it would make a great film if the language and the sexua innuendos were not there. This movie is really a film on faith in God but it will turn a Christians earsand eyes away if the language can't be ignored. If this film would have been Rated PG it would have been 12Stars (There arent that many :) I loved it, he language was bad though for me. I almost changed my mid about watching but I am glad I didnt!! A Mudt see. It is in RED BOX
