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>

Jeremy Jones: You know, it's funny. My dad used to be the same as me when he was a kid. He loved horses. He did the same job I used to do.
Susan Rollins: Yeah?
Jeremy Jones: Yeah. But now... Now he doesn't have time for that kind of stuff. He's too busy.

sweet little movie about a first love in high school
11 February 2005 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

I bought this movie on DVD in order to see it after reading about it in a book titled Shyness & Love by Dr. Brian G. Gilmartin. Seventeen of the people in that study saw the film more than twenty times in the theater, one saw it eighty-six times, and another paid $1,000 (that he could scarcely afford) for a 16mm print of the film! I can't say that I've ever seen a film more than twice in a theater, and that wasn't out of any great affection for those films, just that I'd seen them, and then a group of friends or family were going to see it and I went along.

It is a nice movie. A shy high school sophomore develops a crush on a new girl at school, and with some help from a more outgoing friend and the confidence playing the cello gives him, he asks her out and they date. It's a pretty simple story, and probably pretty low budget, with lots of hand-held camera-work. It's nice, but I can't imagine watching it twenty times! Perhaps had I seen it when I was about the same age as the couple, I'd have a great affection for it.
