an outstanding lesson in tolerance, responsibility, love, & loss
3 July 2000 | by (Knoxville, TN) – See all my reviews

Admittedly, when I first saw this I expected it to be your average "after school special"-type short film, having never seen any of the other "Dear America..." specials before.

But, I found myself drawn into this story. Though I am a buff on this time period of history, you don't have to be to appreciate the lessons this short film presents on dealing with love, loss, tolerance of difference, and responsibility. In this story, all those things intertwine, often carrying over somehow into the other. This film is well produced and well acted. Alison Pill is admirable as "Mem", and the other characters are distinguished as well.

In all, an outstanding film.
