neat little film, with good characterizations
20 February 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very good little character study about a young man who drops out of college in the late 60's, at the height of political and emotional turmoil. Problems arise in the young man's home life, and subsequently he is drafted to Vietnam. The film follows his journey from college life to home life, highlighting in a trip to the army base aboard a bus. The ending is simply unforgettable! Excellent use of period music.
