    Was this movie based off a book? I have been looking around for a bit and can’t figure it out. I looked up the authors of the screenplay but didn’t find a matching title. Thanks! Amazing movie, I remember it well, it left a huge impression on me.

  • Yes. The book was Murphy’s Boy I believe. He was so young here but I loved his performance. One of my favorite.
