Eighteen

0.5

(out of 5)


Amateurishly produced melodrama about a troubled youth who escapes a bad home situation after his brother dies in a car accident caused by his father. While wandering the streets, he strikes up a relationship with a kindly social worker and a friendship with a gay hustler who is doing his own struggling in the big bad city. Our hero also comes upon a collection of cassette tapes recorded by his grandfather (voiced by ) who tells him of his experiences in World War II, though the flashbacks to those experiences were far too obviously filmed in the Canadian woods just north of a major suburb. An interesting concept is veritably ruined by terrible writing, acting, directing and photography, with even an established performer like  coming off a rank amateur in this unwatchable garbage.
