Storyline

In 1964 two high school friends, Brice and Cleveland leave their suburban neighborhood in Michigan to spend the summer in the countryside before going off to college. They are befriended by a lonely farmer, Jack Bodell, who offers them a place to stay. As days pass, Cleveland helps Jack around the farm and finds in him the father figure he lacks, while Brice falls in love with a local girl named Cindy. The unforgettable summer ends too soon, but the memories linger. Four years later Brice and Cleveland drive up to Jack's farm and learn that there is no going back... Written by Ron Teachworth

A touching story
28 August 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This little picture is very simple and yet tells a story that can touch anyone. Bruce Campbell is out of his stereotype here and does a really nice job. The story in strong in this low budget drama, but the production value is solid. The film does a nice job of using the Vietnam war as a back drop to the story. In that, there is a slight anti war theme running through a story about not being able to go back to our youth and recapture our experiences. Reminds me of Herman Hesse theme. Obviously shot on location, the film does an accurate job of creating an original mid west setting and acts as a time piece set in the mid 1960's. There is talent in this writer/ director.
