Rynn Jacobs is a thirteen-year-old girl who lives in a secluded house that she and her father have rented in a quiet seaside community. But whenever anybody from the town tries to satisfy their curiosity, Rynn's father is never around, and it seems as if the girl is all alone. Rynn's resourcefulness is put to the test as several people try to find out what she might be hiding, including the snobby landlady and her sleazy son. Written by

I see where Jodie Foster gets her strong side for her more recent films. She plays a 13 year old who can make it on her own in a way I have never seen before. Antiestablishment yet capitalist enough to know how to survive the plot shows her force full but not sassy. Martin Sheen lets us know his character is a sneeze from the start. Just about everything he does or says makes you want to bury the character alive. The film does have that 70's look but the drama is timeless. OK, maybe I am a hopeless Jodie and Martin fan, but this DVD definitely needs more attention. However the DVD should have a rating more strict than PG. I wouldn't want my kids acting like this.
