Watch "When Billie Beat Bobby" instead.
My wife and I support the ideas shown in this film, but the film itself isn't so great. The story line of each character seems under cooked. They are not that well rounded and this makes it more difficult to enjoy the movie. I am now going to recommend a better film that covers the same ground this one attempts to cover. It is called "When Billie Beat Bobby". It was shown on ABC in the late nineteen nineties. It starred Holly Robbins as King and Ron Silver as Briggs. Watch that instead. It is a far superior film despite both films sharing the same writer. My wife tells me it is on DVD so buy it and support good work.
