Storyline

In East Texas, the summer after high school, Jack falls in love with Ginny, the daughter of the town's banker (Jack's mom's high school sweetheart). Ginny's been at boarding school; she's headed for Vassar. Over her father's strenuous objections, she spends time with Jack. At summer's end, Jack and Ginny elope to Louisiana (where 17-year-olds can marry without their parents' permission), and he gets a job in the oil fields. Her dad hires a menacing private eye to find them, Ginny's pregnant, her town doctor gives her horrible news, and Jack's mom has her own agenda. It seems that Jack and Ginny have grown up under a liar's moon. What will these sweethearts do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Good News about the DVD
13 August 2001 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies. I saw it on cable when it first came out. The first time I saw it, it was one of those feel good movies. Then the next day when I settled in to watch it again it turned into a sad movie because of the different ending. When it came out on video I bought it hoping the feel good ending was used. It was not. I recently found out that the DVD version doesn't have both ending available on it but it DOES have the feel good ending. Now I HAVE to buy a DVD player!
