When a teacher is arrested in Tennessee for trying to teach evolution in 1925, a young ambitious reporter must choose whether to take advice from his sweetheart or the notorious columnist when it comes to his approach to the story.
In New Jersey, 1978-79, the Nearing family loses Rose Nearing, leaving a husband and two sons reeling with the loss. As the father slips increasingly toward drink and the collegiate older brother toward substance abuse and a career in drug smuggling, youngest son Henry has eyes for Grace, the high school senior class beauty. She reciprocates Henry's interest, despite having a steady boyfriend. What Henry takes for granted is his best friend friendship with Merna, a girl who's been there for him since childhood.

When Henry is in Grace's room, she puts an album on the turn table on track one, and it plays Crimson and Clover, by Tommy James and the Shondells. In the next cut, the turn table is behind Grace and isn't spinning and the needle is off the record, but the music is still playing. During that time, the lid to the player is up, but when Henry goes into the closet for 20 minutes to wait for Grace to return, the lid is shown down, and the album has somehow changed to a Velvet Underground album.

I really enjoyed this film! Its a great indie drama and I would definitely watch this film again. The story is a great coming of age story set in the 70's. I really loved the characters, especially Gregory Smith's character, Henry. I have been waiting for a breakthrough performance from him and this was it! His character deals with everything from family issues, regarding his brother and his father (David Morse); to girl problems, involving his crush (Jordana Brewster) and his best friend. This was definitely a job well done by Ashley Johnson, who plays Henry's best friend. Its got drama and it has its funny moments too.
