Storyline

In the early 1960s, a Catholic teenage girl and a Jewish teenage boy living in the same neighbourhood become friends. Together they experience the first stirrings of their burgeoning sexuality. When the girl's parents become increasingly suspicious, they pressure her to stop spending time with him. The boy, from a liberal family, struggles to comprehend what is happening. Finally, she comes to visit him in the night, and they consummate their relationship--with distressing consequences. Not a morality tale, this film shows how religion can tear people apart.

Dancer Texas meets American Graffiti meets Summer of ‘42
22 December 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

In this movie of growing up and graduating from a Texas hill-country high school, we see a Jewish boy and a Catholic girl (who happen to become neighbors) meet, fall in love, and eventually go their separate ways.

I'm a sucker for coming of age movies, particularly those in which the writer is looking back at the time in his life when he first discovers true love. That moment when having sex and having a real relationship become separate things.

This movie tells that story well. Both leads are convincing and are likeable and understandable. The supporting cast and the subplots also add to the overall effect and set this story firmly in its time and place and ground the characters in the correct mindset. There are sure to be better movies just as there are sure to be more universal and epic themes, but this film does its job well and tells a good story in a commendable way.

For those that are romantics at heart, this movie is a must see.
