Storyline

The lives of three young people - a rich student, a girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" and her boyfriend - unexpectedly intersect during one fateful summer in the romantic drama "Here on Earth." Kelley Morse (Chris Klein), who is cocky and brash, normally would never have crossed paths with the residents of a small town near his posh private school. But when he takes his shiny new Mercedes out for a drive, he locks horns with some of the locals, including Jasper (Josh Hartnett). As Jasper's willful girlfriend Samantha (Leelee Sobieski) looks on, Kelley and Jasper engage in a dangerous car race that turns disastrous, leaving a popular diner owned by Samantha's mother in ruins. Kelley and Jasper are sentenced to a creatively ironic but fitting punishment: They must help rebuild the diner. Not only does this ruin Kelley's summer plans, he also must board at the home of his rival, Jasper. Kelley begins to fulfill his "sentence," but refuses to have anything to do with Jasper and his...

The road not taken. Poetry on screen.
25 March 2000 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

My small town local theatre didn't get it in. Instead they opted for a comedy. I chose to go instead, to the next town over and see this. It was well worth it. This is a very touching story with enough humour to lighten the mood. Chris Klein is a wonderful actor and really played his part well. The man brought tears to my eyes. Leelee Sobieski was as good in this as she was in Joan of Arc. Josh Hartnett who plays her small town (boy)friend was so sweet you almost wanted him to get the girl. The 3 actors have very bright futures ahead of them. As long as they choose their roles as wisely as they chose these.
