A socially inept fourteen-year-old experiences heartbreak for the first time when his two best friends - Cappie, an older-brother figure, and Maggie, the new girl with whom he is in love - fall for each other.
After yet another failed relationship, Mrs. Flax (Cher) ups her family to the east coast to start all over again. Reluctantly dragged along with her is her daughter Charlotte - going through a very confusing time of her life - who wants to become a nun, and instead falls in love with a quiet, mild-mannered church employee, to the mixed response of her mother. Set at around the time of the Kennedy Assassination.Written by

The name of the book that Charlotte Flax reads was "The Lives of the Saints" (1894) by Alban Butler. See more »
Mrs. Flax asks Lou if he can feed the girls since she has to run an errand to Boston. He tells her he can and has a pot roast. When she gets back to Lou's later, they have a roasted chicken for dinner. See more »
Cher may not be a true actress, but she plays a hard part with ease. with 2 daughters, (winona ryder & christina ricci), she does a great job of raising them. for some, this is where both ricci & ryder may have gotten their breaks and who better to star with than cher.A 8.5 on my scale, very authentic and direct to the audience.
