File:Powder 4341.jpg

Powder is a 1995 film starring Sean Patrick Flanery as Jeremy "Powder" Reed, an albino boy born with supernatural powers. Powder's mother had died during pregnancy and his father had disowned him, so his grandparents cared for him instead, though keeping him in the basement with nothing but books for solace. CPS agents take Powder from his home and to bring Powder into the outside world after his grandfather was discovered dead.

This film was directed by Victor Salva, who was guilty of molesting a 12-year-old child actor in 1988. Salva's victim would eventually come forward to get others to attempt to boycott the film, a possible reason for its disappointing box office revenues (US$31 million) The controversy and low return is probably why Disney--owner of the film's production company Hollywood Pictures--has never re-hired Salva since.
