Dividing Bar

Well before Billy Elliot, there was this quite thoughtful afterschool special, which certainly made a nice change from the preachiness of many others. Stephen Austin was clearly chosen more for his dancing than for his acting ability, and indeed the acting is quite ropey all around, but hey, it's an afterschool special. Ike Eisenmann crops up playing, of all things, a bully jock, and his younger brother Al plays the protagonist's best friend.
