Morgan J. Freeman won the Director and the Audience Award (a rare combination) at the 1997 Sundance Film Fest for his impressive debut, an edgy, well acted coming of age tale.

Possibly the greatest coming of age drama since The Last Picture Show. Half a star is deducted for the horrible acting by everyone except Sexton III.

Since my favorite movie is The Children of Times Square i heard about this movie on you tube and it sounded like similar but the kids in the steal, and rob stores. I was suprised because this movie is a lot more innapropriete and not as good. Its independent thats fine its just that its not that good. Go watch The Children Of Times Square , then this compare.
