A California high school student plans to escape from her family and small town by going to college in New York.
Review by Steve:
As I always do, I first read the comments of those reviews at the bottom of the list because they give me a ”rudder” as to the believability of the comments to follow. After seeing the film, I must admit that I find these comments dare I say, silly.
Diane and I viewed the film and emerged with similar thoughts as to its intentions. It is an obvious thought to report that the film was just a copy of male traverses through adolescence but set in a female perspective. The lead actor relates situations about maturation from a female perspective, but that is what distinguishes this film: it is a FEMALE perspective rather than the more typical male passage. I do not consider it detrimental that the script deals with similar occasions in the life of young adults.
I trust that the considerable talent behind this film will continue examining the difficulties of female adolescent passage through the minefield of maturation. I consider it a critical examination of both sexes and both generations.
