I know it was 1999...


But how could they get away with this? Juliette Lewis gave an incredibly offensive performance. The worst I've ever seen of any actor playing a person with a mental handicap.

Very strangely, Rosie O'Donnell only a few years later played a person with a mental disability in a life time movie and got slammed for it. And it was not nearly as offensive.

I don't know how they were able to get away with this without backlash.
