Trivia

The film heavily features the music of Melissa Manchester, as Clarke (Jeremy Dozier) is a big fan. The song "Rainbird" was actually co-written by Manchester and Mary Steenburgen, who plays Clarke's mother. See more »

Goofs

The movie is supposedly set in 1987, but the cash the lead character is shown stealing in the trailer ($10 and $5 bills) is clearly modern U.S. currency featuring enhanced security features like large numbers and different colored inks - not bills from the 1980s. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Danielle: I've heard it said that this here... this here's a man's world. And some girls, they believe it. Primpin' and fussin' and holdin' out, hoping a boy will look her way. They don't know they got the power. As for me... I'm not that kind of girl. I'm on top. Which begs the question... if the girl's on top, well... who's the one getting screwed?... So if it's a man's world, God wouldn't have made me.

In a word: FABULOUS!
8 October 2011 | by john-schaefer1See all my reviews

Singer/Songwriter Melissa Manchester was the musical guide through my lonely days as a scared, closeted preacher's kid in Porterville, CA in the late 70s and early 80s. It is thrilling to see a movie that celebrates not only her music, but the particular way she made life easier for untold numbers of gay kids like me. I went to see this movie for her music, but it's also a terrific film! The cast is fantastic and the performances are genuine. It's an engaging story with humor, wit and depth. In lesser hands, heartfelt films like this can easily be lost. Rest assured, this is a triumph at every level. THANK YOU, Abe Sylvia and all involved with this film! I left smiling and will see it again and again.
