Joe the King
Surly, 14-year-old Joe Henry (Noah Fleiss) exists in a fog, shell-shocked from a lifetime in a violent household. So, it comes as no shock when Joe resorts to petty -- but escalating -- crime. Can guidance counselor Len Coles (Ethan Hawke) set Joe on the right course? Or will his life spiral out of control? The powerhouse supporting cast includes Val Kilmer, John Leguizamo, Karen Young and Camryn Manheim.
