The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2017 (472 movies items)

They all have their own problems to deal with but all need each other in dealing with their situations. Being outcasts in town, they turn to each other for hope and understanding. Also being "less privileged" than others their age, they learn to make the best of what they have...each other. Dennis Christopher leads "
