Storyline

Jeremy Jones is learning cello at an arts school in New York. At school he spots Susan Rollins, who practices for a ballet audition, and he falls in love on first sight. He's very diffident in nearing her, so he gets some help of his experienced friend Ralph. Susan's first impression isn't great, until she hears him play his cello. The movie paints a quiet image of him winning her heart and the development of their relationship. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

The best movie I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot since 1973)
5 March 2004 | by snort90See all my reviews

I was 16 when I saw this movie. Not sure how to put into words the feelings I got as I sat there. I'm 46 now and I still think about the feelings I had that day in the theater. We've all experienced those feelings in real life and I'd love to go through it all again. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and get a copy somewhere. Love coming of age...Robby Benson and Glynnis O'Connor were perfect in this movie. I'm a middle-aged man now who feasts on horror and action movies, all I can take. If I had the chance to see it again, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Guys, watch it in private if you must and save your precious ego. You'll like the movie, I promise...
