The Son



A deeply troubled teenager can't articulate the source of his pain but decides he would like to leave his mother for his father's new family.

The struggle many experience with family relationships ensures that "The Son" is confronting viewing, and that the story may hit too close to home. We're served an authentic depiction of a young man experiencing depression while being unable to control or tame his suicidal feelings. The performances are outstanding, showing people locked in a struggle with those they love and with few choices available to them. Harrowing, unflinching, and ultimately unsentimental storytelling. Reach out.
