The basketball game was shot in the gymnasium of what was, at that time, Broken Arrow Senior High in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. To make it look like a nighttime game, they put thick black paper over the windowpanes. This added to the heat generated by the summer weather, as they were filming daylight hours. See more »
During the shots where it is considered "morning" like when Tex is riding Rowdy before school, where a hungover Tex overhears Mason and Cole's conversation, and when Tex and Mason's father arrives, the sunlight tells us that it is noon, when the story line is supposed to be around 7 or 8 o clock in the morning.

An okay teenage drama confronting realistic problems
Matt Dillon has acted wisely and quite good in this flick. A typical American indie film reflecting local people's stories from '70s-'80s . I expected a deeper snese of realism in here but it is not there. The one I can think of as a better option is Buffalo '66 and it does a really good job there. The very theme of parent-children disturbed relationships has not much depth in this. But looking forward to watch more Matt Dillon films.
