If you’re into action movies, or expect Robin Williams to be in any way funny, then please give this one a miss. If however you like serious movies and aren’t ignorant/homophobic, this is a thriller well worth watching in the dark.

It is a rather obscure flick so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from it but since I have a weak spot for Robin Williams , I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, I must admit that I was at first really surprised by the damned thing. Indeed, for most of the movie, I thought it was actually quite spellbinding to behold.

Gabriel Noone (Robin Williams) is a storyteller with his own national late-night radio show. Trying to provide the spark Gabriel needs to cure his writers block, his literary agent provides him with a manuscript that will be published shortly. Its not easy reading, the manuscript is a detailed account of the prolonged sexual abuse a young boy suffered at the hands of his own parents and their friends. Wanting to know more Gabriel develops a friendly phone relationship with the fourteen-year-old boy now suffering from AIDs, but all is not what it seems.

"02.05.2015 Robin Williams kuulee asioita yöradio-ohjelmassaan. Tästä alkaa todella sekava elokuva, jossa on jotain pedari/skitsofrenia-juttuja, jotka ovat muuten aika perseestä. Kaiken lisäksi tämä näytti tv-elokuvalta."

From Best to Worst: Robin Williams (76 movies items)

"This psychological thriller compels by blurring the line between truth and fiction; unfortunately, the film itself gets muddled in a hazy account of Maupin's original novel."

"11.2, TV Rautalangasta synkkyyttä hakeva trilleri, jossa joku pedofiilien ahdistelemaksi joutunut pikkupoika ottaa Robin Williamsiin yhteyttä. Mielenkiinto häviää heti ensi metreillä ja palaa siinä about 20 minuuttia ennen elokuvan loppua."

Well, eventually, I must admit that I was at first really surprised by the damned thing. Indeed, for most of the movie, I thought it was actually quite spellbinding to behold. Indeed, the performances were really good, especially from Robin Williams who gave one of his best performances and the story was really impressive (It was in fact based on some true events, apparently). Unfortunately, I thought that this interesting material was rather poorly handled,  the whole thing felt terribly gimmicky and I personally think that the twist didn't work out at all. Indeed, during the beginning of the movie, Pete Logand was played” read more
