This unusual modern-day fable concerns a super-powered teenager who inspires nothing but hostility in the small-minded folk of his hometown. Sean Patrick Flanery stars as Jeremy Reed, nicknamed "Powder" because he is an albino. Powder has been living his entire 16 years in his grandparents' basement, but they have both passed away. The boy is removed from his home and placed in a school. There, science teacher Ripley (Jeff Goldblum) and psychologist Jessie Caldwell (Mary Steenburgen) discover that in addition to being an albino, their new student is the smartest person who ever lived with an IQ off the charts -- and that he is electrically super-charged, which renders him hairless. Powder also has miraculous powers of perception, ESP, and healing, which he uses to ease the death of the terminally ill wife of local Sheriff Barnum (Lance Henriksen) and to give a bigoted redneck hunter (Brandon Smith) a firsthand demonstration of the pain suffered by a deer he's just shot. Powder's gentle nature attracts a pretty coed, Lindsey (Missy Crider), but in spite of his Christ-like demeanor, Powder's abnormalities inspire hatred on the part of many bigoted citizens, especially school bully John Box (Bradford Tatum).

jUST WONDERFUL. I ENJOYED WATCHING IT SO MUCH. THE CHARACTERS IN THE MOVIE WERE VERY MOVING AND YOU CAN SEE HOW PEOPLE CAN BE SO ABUSIVE TO SOMEONE WHO IS DIFFERENT AND THE BOY IN THE STORY DID THAT EVEN PROVIDING SOME MAGICAL MOMENTS NO ONE EXPECTED AND THE ENDING WAS AN ASTONISHING THING TO SEE.

This is a fantastic movie! It shows the lack of humanity and understanding from humans, how cruel and insensitive humans are. But...it also shows that there are some who still have the loving heart that GOD gave us and how others can change. I really like this movie and highly recommend it. My copy came from digitaldogpound and I highly recommend them as well. The movie came in ahead of schedule, was in excellent condition. I am extremely pleased.
