Hard Choices ★★★ 1984

A 15-year-old Tennessee boy is unjustly charged as an accessory to murder, until a female social worker decides to help him. From then on, nothing is predictable. Excellent work by Klenck, McCleery, and Seitz. Don't miss Sayles as an unusual drug dealer. Intelligent, surprising, and powerful. Based on a true story, this is a low profile film that deserves to be discovered. 90m/C VHS . Margaret Klenck, Gary McCleery, John Seitz, John Sayles, Liane (Alexandra) Curtis, J.T. Walsh, Spalding Gray; D: Rick King; W: Rick King.
