| Its funny... Neil Patrick Harris
Always seems to be able to engage the audience. While this is a true story about Keller the serial arsonist in Seattle, it is truly the sign of a gifted actor if he can draw you into his world.

I happened to watch this movie this morning, and at first glance it is yet another true crime LMN movie with Gerald McRaney. Cindy Pickett turns in a decent performance as his mother (We may also remember her from "St. Elsewhere" and the movie "I Know My Name is Stephen" starring Cory Nemec). The story unfolds as the Seattle police have no clue as to who the culprit is, until McRaney decides the family, in good conscience, must turn him in.

I admit I also loved Neil Patrick Harris in "Clara's Heart". I am biased also, as I remember him from the days of Doogie Howser, MD, and he actually looks a lot like my brother, who used to get teased about this. Anyway this film is recommended. 8/10.
