    So did anybody watch this film on Showtime tonight?

    I thought it was very well acted, especially Ben Foster as the troubled "on the edge" kid. He's got a great future ahead of him.

    I have to say, I really felt for Foster's character and completely understood how he felt. It also angered me that the issue of bully's just is NOT getting addressed, it is, afterall, the real cause of those school shootings (not video games, rap music or violent movies) like Columbine.

    Randy Harrison (from "Queer As Folk") seemed a bit out of place as the leader of the "bad" kids.

    I didn't watch much of the Linda Ellerbee special that came on afterwards. It seemed poorly produced and very boring.

    I watched this movie and thought it was excellent and very thought provoking. I couldn't stop watching, and missed the first half a Alias because of it.
