Storyline

Darcy, editor at her high school paper, and her long-term boyfriend Stan are in their last months of school and already have found places in good colleges. Recently they started to sleep with each other and, surprise, surprise, Darcy gets pregnant. Neither Darcy's mother, who was left by her husband and had to bring up Darcy alone, nor Stan's Catholic parents are very supportive and urge them to have an abortion or give up for adoption respectively. However Darcy's and Stan's love is so intense, they could imagine to have a baby, but this would mean to give up their college careers.

Molly Ringwald looks pretty and acts with pizazz
22 March 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Darcy (Molly Ringwald) is a high school senior. She is interested in becoming a journalist and her domineering mother encourages her to pursue college. Darcy, however, is also in love with fellow senior, Stan, who has been offered a complete architectural scholarship to Cal Tech. Despite being on the pill, Darcy ends up pregnant. Whatever will the young couple do? This sweet film is a bit stretched in the realism department, but is carried well by the two young stars. Molly, especially, is so lovely and touching, one wonders why she never became a major star. The supporting cast is capable, the costumes very alluring, and the scenery of Kenosha, Wisconsin, captured perfectly. If it is your mission, ladies, to see as many romantic dramas as you can, add this one to your list, by all means.
