On the Edge: A Joyride Through Sex, Love and Other Activities [DVD] [2001]

John Carney's humorous coming-of-age film On the Edge comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1.

    On the Edge
    A teenager finds himself reaching out to others as he tries to heal his emotional wounds in this drama. Jonathan (Cillian Murphy) is a young man who is having a difficult time coming to terms with the recent death of his father; after falling into a deep depression, he attempts to commit suicide by driving a car off an embankment. Jonathan survives the accident and is sent to a mental institution for treatment. While in the hospital, Jonathan becomes friendly with a disturbed youngster named Toby (Jonathan Jackson), and falls in love with Rachel (Tricia Vessey), another patient at the facility. Also featuring Stephen Rea, On the Edge was the third feature from Irish director John Carney and the first to be backed by a major American studio. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
