Dominguez High, in the infamous Compton, CA, has not produced a play in over twenty years. With no money and no stage, two teachers and twenty-four students attempt to produce Thornton Wilder's American Classic OUR TOWN.
Finest version ever. A film that may change you forever.
This film made me think better, and made me come to terms with life in a way that few movies ever have or could. To put it simply, it changed me forever, for the better. It has that kind of power. The cast is stellar from top to bottom. The directing is genius. I can't recommend this more highly. If you think that Robby Benson couldn't act, or that his type of acting style could never be suited for a film that mattered, see this one. He and Glynnis O'Connor are *made* for these parts. They had such chemistry in this film that it is truly a shame that they didn't go on to become a regular acting duo (this was their third, and last movie together). I always cry during the last part. Why in heaven hasn't someone put this out on DVD yet? The owners don't seem to know what a gem they have here.
