      Steve D Leigh is a blast but the film is just uncomfortable. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/24 Full Review Audience Member Curious 14 year olds in the 60's try to learn about sex. The kids talk more mature than the adults. I should have known this would be awful when the box touted it was based on a critically acclaimed book. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member a good film about growing up and getting laid persay Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Cast: Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Mischa Barton, Bug Hall, Brad Renfro, R. Lee Ermey, Gerald Lenton-Young, Peggy Lipton, Andrea Menard, Michael Greyeyes Director: Tamra Davis Summary: In 1963, Lydia (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and her 14-year-old son, Sam (Bug Hall), are sent to live in Wyoming while Lydia's politician father runs for governor of North Carolina. There, Sam meets Maurey (Mischa Barton), a pre-pubescent girl struggling with her sexuality. And while Lydia lives it up, Sam and Maurey race to grow up. But becoming an adult is harder than any of them expected in this coming-of-age drama co-starring Drew Barrymore. My Thoughts: "I find it funny that they promote Drew Barrymore on the cover when she's in the film for maybe ten minutes all together. Her part in the film is minor and has no real substance. Jennifer Jason Leigh is fantastic in the movie. Her character is wild and free and very much over the top. I liked her in this free spirit role. Bug Hall was good as well. It's funny how well Mischa Barton acted as a child. As she's gotten older it seems like she has lost that confident spark. I liked her in this. Sam and Maurey give you a great glimpse of the example of teenagers who have parents that either don't communicate with them, or do so in a negative way. These young kids are sexually curious and are willing to do whats necessary to find out what it's all about. One has a mother who is very prim and modest (or so you think), while the others mother is very flamboyant, and by her son's remarks, has had many suitors and really isn't much of a mother. But of course out of the two mothers, they ask the flamboyant one, which is a mistake. She is careless with her comments and pretty much gives these young teens permission to do whatever. The movie is basically about discovering sex and growing up and dealing with the very adult consequences that come with having sex. Not a great film, but still I enjoyed it." Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a strange, crazy movie and yet... I liked it! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Could have been much better than it turned out. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
