Coming of age in an Ozark town. Enoch is a high school senior: he stutters, has one friend, Wheels, a kid with CP who's in a wheelchair, and thinks about college in Tennessee on a baseball scholarship. He's philosophical, loves poetry, and lives with his mom and grandfather. Life gets complicated when he finds himself attracted to Abby, one of the popular girls. When he starts hanging out with her, even though he wants Wheels along, in part to help him finish his sentences, it causes friction between the two friends and gives Enoch pause about whether he should "leave town to make something of himself." Can he figure out what he wants without hurting anyone's feelings? Maybe not.Written by
I absolutely love this movie!!!!!!!!!!! It is a perfect display of small town Arkansas life. Its also a touching coming of age story that could (and did) really happen. I cry every time I watch this movie. Happy tears. Anyone from Arkansas should see this movie just to prove that not everyone sees or portrays Arkansas as nothing but hillbillies and hicks. The F-bomb is dropped a couple of times but its not like they swear every other word. Its also not full of "a-list" actors, but they do a terrific job. It also shows how people need each other to overcome adversity. The two main characters are Wheels and Enoch. Wheels has CP but no mental deficiencies and Enoch is the star pitcher for the high school baseball team but has a stuttering problem. Enoch helps wheels with his physical needs and Wheels helps him with his social needs.
