One of the Best Teen Love Films of Recent Times
23 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I go back quite aways to A Summer Place and Parish,yet even as a senior citizen I found The First Time to be a refreshingly honest and well acted film highlighted by the performance of Britt Robertson, a young actress who unfortunately is in the shade of Jennifer Lawrence and Ellen Page...yet I hope she can find he way into the sun because she has a lot to offer.

The film, although light hearted, doesn't deal in mind numbing clichés. It is about the real emotions of modern high school kids, who you realize aren't that much different from the kids of my generation.

It's nice to see a film where kids actually fall deeply for each other rather than just fleeting sexual attraction.
