Trivia

to offset complaints from parents who had brought teenagers to the movie theater and were shocked at the content of the debates (abortion for example) for a movie with popular teen actors, when the VHS was made available in video stores, there were optional warning stickers for the boxes to let the renting public know that some of the debates were of a sensitive nature See more »

Great Movie
14 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is this movie ever going to come out on DVD? I love this movie, it has stayed with me for years because it captures the turmoil of teenagers learning how to live with the past and be a good person in the future. I would recommend that all teenagers see it, because it is so sincere and earnest. The emotion and confusion of being a good person, and a good student and a good friend is phenomenal. People are always wondering what they can do or say to be a better person and this movie teaches them that we all make mistakes, but we all survive. If a child or adult learns anything from this I would hope that it would be to treat each person fairly and compassionately. This movie shows that we all have our own demons and with the help and support of family, and friends we can all learn to deal with those demons without hurting those we love and using them as shields from our own pain.
