Though pains were no doubt made to ensure that the "mirror-image" flashback set for all 1955 scenes appears to be the exact opposite of the set for 1975 scenes, packaging for the many GE light bulbs stored on a back shelf in 1955 are not reversed as they should be (though the large GE sign above is correctly reversed).

I see something different every time I see this movie. What starts out seeming to be a very simplistic movie about James Dean fans is really more about what we believe in and how difficult it sometimes is to get beyond "false fronts".
Cher is excellent and the rest of the cast do a credible job of allowing us to see different viewpoints through different characters. Marta Heflin as Edna Louise probably has the most to offer in the way of "the moral to the story". Sudie Bond as Juanita has some of the best lines delivered in an excellent "why me" voice.
Things are not the way they seem in any of the characters lives with one exception.
Don't just watch this movie once. Watch it again and again and pick up something more each time.
