A tour-de-force in acting. Phoenix is a revelation!

A touching, forgotten drama about a family of radicals still running from the consequences of their actions. River Phoenix, Lahti and Hirsch all are wonderful. A must-see.
| Original Score: 4/5

One of the most poignant and edifying films made in the 1980s about the blessings and burdens of family life.

River Phoenix gives an Oscar nominated performance as the teenage son of radical parents in Sidney Lumet's interesting but not entirely satisfying politicial melodrama.
