Comment: Older teen boy Ben and his younger brother sharing this bedroom. The younger brother in tighty whities. He is maybe afraid of something and may sleep in Ben’s bed as well. Not for the first time. Ben said that he shouldn’t come too close.

Luckily I figured out the title of two previous movies, but I couldn’t find this one. I just have a very short clip (digitized in 2004) and can’t say much more about it. If you know, please comment.

Looks like a typical TV drama (maybe of the 90s) but could also be anything else from thriller to horror movie, maybe of the late 80s. Ben is a common name so it’s hard to find. The young boy reminds me of Cameron Finley. Probably an US or Canadian movie?

Update: I find out the name of this film “Slums of Beverly Hills” (rated R). Post originally titled “Unknown 3: US film Ben younger brother tighty whities”. 1990s was correct Also US film.

Ben Abromovitz ~19 yo (was 17) played by David Krumholtz, the younger brother played by Eli Marienthal. (11 yo not 9). Setting is in 1976, not the 90s. Semiautobiographical.
