Editors Note
Note When 19-year-old rebel Jonathan Breech (Cillian Murphy)--suffering from depression after the death of his father--attempts suicide by driving a stolen car off a cliff, he is given the choice of going to prison or being committed to a psychiatric institution. Jonathan chooses the hospital, where he begrudgingly attends group therapy, clashes with a well-meaning doctor (Stephen Rea), and eventually finds hope with a new friend (Jonathan Jackson) and a love interest (Tricia Vessey). ON THE EDGE is an intense coming-of-age drama from Irish director John Carney and boasts a standout performance by up-and-comer Murphy.
Entertainment Weekly "...Carney freshens the plot with moving, honest performances from the young cast and a smart soundtrack..." 05/24/2002 p.74-5
