Storyline

In the early 1960s, a Catholic teenage girl and a Jewish teenage boy living in the same neighbourhood become friends. Together they experience the first stirrings of their burgeoning sexuality. When the girl's parents become increasingly suspicious, they pressure her to stop spending time with him. The boy, from a liberal family, struggles to comprehend what is happening. Finally, she comes to visit him in the night, and they consummate their relationship--with distressing consequences. Not a morality tale, this film shows how religion can tear people apart. Written by Stephen Bosch <sfbosch@ucalgary.ca>

Well deserved
18 June 2002 | by malacara1985See all my reviews

I believe that praise is deserved for this movie which I feel was well written and beautifully acted in. This has become one of my favorites. And although i read somewhere that there should have been accents in the movie because it took place in Texas, I disagree. Not everyone in Texas has an accent. I really think this was a great movie and it seemed very believable of the era it was portraying.
