Set against the urban jungle of 1963 New York's gangland subculture, this coming of age teenage movie is set around the Italian gang the Wanderers. Slight comedy, slight High School angst ... See full summary »

The filmmakers would like to express their deepest gratitude and thanks to all who gave their time, their artistry, their technical abilities, their equipment, their clothes, their homes, their furniture, their cars, their food, their pets, their children, their offices, their copy machines, their phones, their pillows and blankets, their credit limits, their lungs, their patience, their marriages, their political influence, their good reputations, their physical health and most of all their good will that made the production of this film possible.

While many will write this off as a slow and plotless waste of celluloid, I found it to be an excellent portrayal of the disconnection and confusion that plagues our youth. Sad to say, this could have had a "based on a true story" title card at the beginning. I've known girls who expressed their praise towards this film for it captures their growing-up period perfectly. If it feels like it's going nowhere, well that just adds to the film's realism. Unlike KIDS, the lead character finally is conscious of her transgressions and thus finds redemption. I find that reason alone, as well as the entire film, worthy of the recognition that it deserves. Rent it with an open mind...
