Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, when Katie and Billy jump into grandmother's pool, they approach the pool from the narrow, short side. Later in the movie, when Billy returns to the pool, he makes the same approach, but the pool has flipped a quarter of a turn. He is now looking at the wide side of the pool. See more »

this is actually my favorite movie.
14 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I have never seen a more touching tale of a boy becoming a man, and it spans 2 decades to get from start to finish.

The full spectrum of actions dealt with are amazing, the loss of a father, the loss of a dream, the loss of a true love, the separation from all that was "holy" to this young man and his attempts to reclaim his life after years of avoiding everything real.

All this told with a backdrop that is flawless and accurate. (it takes place in Philadelphia, my hometown)

Truly a touching movie, and my favorite drama.
