Storyline

In New Jersey, 1978-79, the Nearing family loses Rose Nearing, leaving a husband and two sons reeling with the loss. As the father slips increasingly toward drink and the collegiate older brother toward substance abuse and a career in drug smuggling, youngest son Henry has eyes for Grace, the high school senior class beauty. She reciprocates Henry's interest, despite having a steady boyfriend. What Henry takes for granted is his best friend friendship with Merna, a girl who's been there for him since childhood.

Goofs

When Henry is in Grace's room, she puts an album on the turn table on track one, and it plays Crimson and Clover, by Tommy James and the Shondells. In the next cut, the turn table is behind Grace and isn't spinning and the needle is off the record, but the music is still playing. During that time, the lid to the player is up, but when Henry goes into the closet for 20 minutes to wait for Grace to return, the lid is shown down, and the album has somehow changed to a Velvet Underground album.

High Hopes Not Really Met
16 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie this weekend here in New York, and I had really high hopes for it. Maybe that's where things first went wrong. This was a good idea for a story, heck, it's been done before. But this kind of coming of age story can usually be redone and retold in a rewarding way with the right script and cast. I think my main problem isn't that I hated this movie - I didn't feel one way or another about it. I didn't understand why the characters were the way they were. I wanted to know more about Grace - okay, maybe she was supposed to be mysterious but that didn't come across on screen...I was interested in why she was the way she was about guys, her stance on love, etc. As for the protagonist, i don't think it was the fault of the actor, but the he was just annoying and not sympathetic at all.
