Antediluvian teen flick
27 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

This black and white film about a summer in the life of Long Island teenagers is slow, and very much a period piece. It's not great as a movie but is interesting as a relic, one of the first movies of a genre, the teen-movie. It's got many of the scenes that have now become cliché but were much fresher in its day; a scene at the beach where the non-too- bright jock kicks sand at the introspective bookish boy, a scene of underage drinking, a fumbling attempt at making out in a car and finally the scene where the meek one stands up to the bully.

While film students with a historical bent should see this, it's probably too dated and slow moving for the casual viewer.
