A great film for Gen-X'ers - beautiful storytelling.
13 August 2002 | by (Winston-Salem, NC) – See all my reviews

Following Joel through his adventurous summer in the early 80's, especially if you are an early gen-x'er, is very fun and is told through creative and beautiful visuals. Capturing the innocence and ever-occurring discovery of approaching teenhood is executed gracefully. A must-see!
