A real tear jerker
10 May 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I first viewed this movie as a teenager and immediately fell in love with Sal Mineo. I watched it every time it came on, even when it was late night. It is a simple story but a real heart warmer and tear jerker because of the crisis Dino goes through and the struggle he faces to be accepted. I wish that this movie would come on television again for the new generation to see and appreciate.
