A movie that "touched" me as I grew up years ago
20 June 2001 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie was released when I graduated from High School. As such it touched a part of me that was, shall we say, feeling sorry for myself? I loved classical music, found that the women (at that tender age!) were into the "macho" guys and this movie was total vindication! It remains as a fond memory and one I want to see again! Watched it many times in that era and sure would like to find it in VHS or better, DVD format! Don't have a copy!
