The film is not brilliant, but it certainly is interesting. It's the type of film that asks the question, "What would you do to keep your child safe?" Streep and Neeson give superb performances as the parents with opposing views on how to help their son. Furlong is equally impressive as the accused kid, finally growing out of the mainstream teenage junk and into a surprisingly mature role. Barbet Schroeder's direction is as grimly fascinating as his Reversal of Fortune. The script tends to lapse into unintentional funny dialogue, but you may be able to ignore such minor details.
