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. Written by

This movie is for keeps! Not only is it insightful and informative about abortion and STDs, but it reminded me of how many movies from the 1980's suffered from Molly Ringwald's absence. Case in point: St. Elmo's Fire. Another example: Little Darlings. She might not have added that mystical Jean Seberg / Bea Arthur element, but she's a fresh reminder that Hollywood's sometimes takes a chance on otherwise ordinary people that have a spark in their soul. Bravo, Molly!
