A heartbreaker...
22 January 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Sally Field plays an older teen who has run away from her suburban home to be with her hippie boyfriend. This no-holds-barred television movie begins with her returning home in the middle of the night, walking up her block, into the driveway, going into the house where her family is asleep and climbing into her old childhood bed. Why did she leave in the first place? Take a look at her family: her parents are a society-party dream, but completely dysfunctional after the guests have gone home. Sally's younger sister is no better, fighting her folks over every little thing and popping pills on the side. There's an odd sequence midway through that has Field running down the street drawing ribbons in the air, but it doesn't detract from the realistic nature of the relationships or the film's uncompromising ending. One of the first films (TV-made or otherwise) to rip the lid off of American suburbia and its false sense of comfort and security. Despite some facile overacting here and there, it is a sharply-edited and well-realized piece.
