Cool teenage film which although dated is more thoughtful than most. Encapsulates the period perfectly - full of groovy young people obsessed with the opposite sex undergoing mainly embarrassing experiences. Pop music is used entirely for the soundtrack and this reinforces the aura of youth. The group playing at the church rave is a classic Sixties moment which immortalises the real location of Bowes Lyon House Youth Club. The Stevenage new town locations and the top London fashions add to the shiny glossy feeling of it all. Grounded in the world of council houses and shop work, it occasionally takes on flights of fantasy. The bed shop orgy scene and Judy Geesons bare bottom were considered risqué for the time. Newcomer Barry Evans gives a confident performance as innocent, angst ridden Jamie desperate to lose his virginity. His friend Spike, played surprisingly by a young Christopher Timothy, seems more experienced but is he? Jamie's tribulations with various girls are touching and funny, easily recognisable if you are male of course. Although sexist by todays standards it does retain its period charm and there are several memorable scenes. It has never been released on DVD and nobody seems to know why.
