Storyline

The movie spotlights an intelligent high school senior and National Merit Scholar (Bryant) who has never been part of the "in crowd." She teaches a high school equivalency night class, tends to the needs of her widower father, Jesse (Forster), and pretty much stays to herself. But when she meets a loner who recently moved to the town of Due East, she feels a sense of belonging for the first time in her life. Written by Anonymous

Give it a chance; it is worth watching.
6 August 2004 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

Although many in our pseudo-sophisticated society may find this film mundane and disparagingly label it a "chick flik," I found it well acted, directed and worth watching. Of course, it is not "On the Waterfront" or "East of Eden," but it does capture the difficulties associated with single parenthood, meddlesome relatives, divorce, and, of course, the main theme of teenage pregnancy. It attempts to address too many issues and that weakens it, but overall is does a decent enough job.

Although the story takes place in the South, it was filmed in Vancouver, and the charm of Vancouver was captured nicely.

Overall, give it a chance; it's worth watching.
