One Step Away
In this episode your hosts are discussing the 1985 (short?) film One Step Away. We're not going to sugarcoat it here: this is a movie full of plot holes, time jumps, nonsensical dialogue, unclear character motivation, and painful visual fidelity. Despite these myriad problems, we still somehow found a way to talk about it for almost an hour and have a lot of fun doing so.
Plot Synopsis: Ron Petrie (Keanu Reeves) is a troubled teen whose life is hanging by a thread, as he's on the verge of suspension from school, subject to arrest for breaking and entering, and the cause of his single mother's impending eviction from her apartment. Unless he can find a resolution, his only option seems to be life of street crime.
Next week we’ll be watching the 1986 film Youngblood which also stars Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, and Cynthia Gibb. It’s very likely that simply by virtue of having a DVD copy means we’ll enjoy this more.
