Storyline

Two girl friends in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina find their relationship changing as they encounter new arrivals to the town. Frankie works with her brother, Neil running their family's beach-front burger bar. Frankie's friend, Nicola, runs a body-piercing shop next to the burger shop. Neil hires the life-guard's new flame, Josee, as a waitress. Frankie makes an immediate bond with Josee, which causes jealousy with Nicola. Then a drifter, who sells t-shirts from the back of his van, starts a romance with Frankie. This casts her away from both of the other two women and for the first time gives her confidence to function on her own, instead of hiding behind the other more brash or beautiful women.

An engaging movie with unique and appealing characters.
30 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I loved the way this movie delved into relationships between people. Compared to some coming-of-age movies, where characters seem to fall in and out of love at the drop of a hat, I thought this movie did a great job of helping you reflect on what qualities attract us to other people. Also, I found the sometimes quirky characters appealing and realistic. Overall, it was an engaging story of an adolescent's girls search for identity.
