The movie won two awards at the Deauville Film Festival in 1990 both of which were ties. It won the Coup de Coeur LTC Award tieing with Whit Stillman's Metropolitan (1990) as well as the Audience Award tieing with Tune in Tomorrow... (1990). Writer-director Allan Moyle was also nominated for the Critics Award at this fest but did not win. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, Hard Harry plays Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows" from a record with a Motown label, but all of Cohen's studio albums to date have been released by Columbia. Also, though he is shown playing the first track on the record, "Everybody Knows" is actually the third track on the album 'I'm Your Man' on which the song originally appears. See more »

I don't hate the world anymore, but I still love this film...
I first saw this film around 1996, when I was 13 and just going into that 'I hate the world and everything about it' phase that most teenagers go through. I fell in love with it there and then and over the years I've owned 5 separate copies.
Not just because of the unbelievably brilliant soundtrack, not just because of the real and relate-able characters, not just because of the engaging and original plot, but because I still feel now, what I first felt when I saw the film. Sometimes everyone feels that they're alone and it takes another voice, one coming from a someone you might not even ever have met reminding you that everyone feels that crushing loneliness and only you can change that.
Even now that I'm nearing my mid-twenties and every time I watch this film I want to 'Rise up in the cafeteria' and 'stab my teachers with a plastic fork.' Being a teenager sucks, its probably the most free time of your life, but everything from parents, to homework, to hormones prevents most from truly enjoying the experience.
I want every teenager to watch this film, I want every person who looks back on their teen years with regret to watch this film, I want every person who's forgotten what its like to be a teenager to watch this film. I think there's room in just about everyone's heart for it.
