In this independent coming-of-age drama, David is a 16-year-old boy living in New Jersey, who has been forced to grow up in a hurry. David’s father, Jack, has decided to leave Katie, his wife, and David’s mother. Katie, who has long had a problem with alcohol, quickly sinks deep into drink, and as his siblings distance themselves from the situation, David finds himself taking care of his mother and running the household. David has an interest in acting, and in an effort to escape from his troubles at home, he immerses himself in his school’s theater program. David begins to bond with Kenny, his drama teacher, but he soon realizes that Kenny’s greatest interest in him is sexual. While David feels no physical attraction to men, he succumbs to pressure from Kenny and finds himself in a relationship with his teacher. Desperate to blot out the troubling emotions that envelop him, David begins drinking and using drugs, with unhappy results. Crutch was the first feature film from Rob Moretti, who wrote and directed the picture, also playing Kenny.
