Seemed a bit long, but what could possibly be excised?
My overall impression
The oddly evocative title doesn’t really prepare you for the two-character drama that plays out—-but in this case that makes for Good Theatre! After 80 minutes it turns out to have been a revelation of the black heart behind the All-American facade of a teen champion. It’s a Star Vehicle for two guys generations apart, fortunately cast with two Could-Be stars who don’t need the mounting missing from this modest production. They command attention with their craft, and I found myself wondering how much rehearsal time they invested to bring this to its present perfect peak. Seemed somewhat long but I can’t imagine cutting any of it!
