Moving film with issues that people who have been in the same situations will be able to relate to. Sean Astin(Greg) was really good in this film he played his part well and you feel for him and try to understand how it must feel living life the way they all do on the streets. Great cast line-up and it was good to see Will Smith in there. All the characters seemed real not just movie stars playing homeless kids.

Sean Astin making us feelReviewed byCassandra_JadeVote: 10/10
Each time I see this movie it reminds me of why I consider it one of my top 5 of all-time. Let's forget about the all-star cast. Let's forget about the dark, true to life images that it reveals. If for nothing else, you must appreciate the haunting soundtrack that Melissa Etheridge does for this film. Her songs and voice are perfectly matched to this feature. If the song played during the train-jumping scene does not put goosebumps on your arms, then the song during the final scene will. All in all, this movie is superbly acted, cinematicly beautiful, and will leave a lasting impression on you for quite some time.
Marc Rocco writes and directs us into the world of homeless runaways on the streets of Hollywood in this often overlooked early-nineties gem. Artistic, fast-paced editing and a unique story structure capture and hold our interest with an emotional acoustic soundtrack by Melissa Etheridge. The dim lighting can be frustrating, but it certainly helps to convey the darkness of the subject matter. Understated perfomances also create a compelling character-driven drama by a cast of soon-to-be stars, before the mediocrity of fame had a chance to dull their talent. (Will Smith, Kyle MacLachlan, Tara Flynn Boyle, Rikki Lake, etc...) Life on the streets has rarely been conveyed so well, and the themes and social issues raised are wrapped in an extremely appealing package.
