Sincere and well-presented
19 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This hasn't been probably seen since the early 1980s when it was on a UHF station; a "lost" film that was never on VHS or (probably) never on DVD. It's definitely a period piece via the 1970s fashions, music, big cars, etc. However it's a thoughtful, low-key, well-scored, sometimes funny drama of a teen (Lane Caudell), about to graduate from high school, and unsure of his future. He might pursue a baseball career, go to college or join the military: his best friend (Darby Hinton) and girlfriend (Ann Dusenberry) help him. His father (the excellent William Windom) is also having severe health problems. There's a surprising, unexpected revelation toward the end regarding his mother (well-played by Julie Adams) that triggers conflict. Small budget only enhances the film's likability, young stars are nearly as good as the veteran actors. See it, if you can.
