A beautiful, tastefully done, unusual coming-of-age story.
18 September 1999 | by devermanSee all my reviews

This is one of the few movies I have elected to see more than once.

This coming-of-age story about two teen girls who discover their love for one another is both poignant and funny, yet always tasteful. The casting and direction gives us characters that look like ordinary people, as opposed to the usual pretty-boy/girl fare that prompts our eyes to love the characters even before we know what they're about. For instance, Randy has to grow on you during the movie--she is not a particularly adorable young lady in her actions and attitudes, neither does she have the looks of a classic beauty. The result is, when girlfriend Evie (Nicole Ari Parker) calls her "beautiful" when they are finally alone together, we know she means it on the deepest levels, we believe her immediately, and even see Randy through her eyes.

This is a great movie for all ages. Personally, I will be watching for more of Nicole Ari Parker's work.
