Lou Diamond Phillips
Lou Diamond Phillips,
I caught this movie one weekend afternoon years ago when the clothes and hairstyles were still fashionable. What intrigued me I have no idea, maybe it was the woman in the bikini caressing her body and the music was very Beach Boys. I had the unmistakeable impression I had seen Didi Conn and Bruno Kirby in something else, but no idea what it could have been, especially Kirby. They were perfectly cast as brother and sister. John Friedrich, as the new kid Darryl Fitzgerald, rounded out the group for me. Kirby sought to get back at Lee Purcell by pushing Friedrich to run against her as class president. With his slogan 'you don't know me, but. . .' and his weak, adolescent behaviour, Friedrich was very convincing for me as an insecure teen. When he learns of underhanded dealings perpetrated by Kirby, he drops out of the race. This was my intro to the teen vehicle of everything wrapping up in the end. I always wondered why the film never became more recognizeable or launched more successful careers for the actors and actresses.
