Anastasio Samosa Portocarrero
In 1966 New Jersey, Jill Rosen, a frustrated high schooler, is intrigued by an enigmatic new student known only as the Sheik. Sheik is an Italian whose primary interests are his car, Frank Sinatra, and Jill. At first she is taken aback by his forwardness, but they soon develop a relationship, much to the chagrin of their parents. Sheik gets expelled from school, and Jill is accepted at an all-girls college. After a fight, Sheik goes to Florida to work in a club lip-synching Sinatra songs. Sheik becomes dissatisfied with his Florida lifestyle and goes back to New Jersey to try to win Jill over. Written by

When Sheik and Jill leave on their trip to the New Jersey shore, they cross a large bridge that has the slogan "Trenton Makes - The World Takes" on it. This bridge actually takes you from Trenton into Morrisville, Pennsylvania. See more »
This is a real sleeper that should not be overlooked? A clash of two cultures: Sinatra v. the Beatles and upper middle class suburban values v. working class realities.A coming-of-age film sans gratuitous sexuality. Clearly Roseanne Arquette's career took off after this film, but what happened to Vincent Spano? Looking back at the film, I wonder if Nicolas Cage would have made this film more popular.
