Love, life, and the struggles of a mother bringing up a son in the the late 70's. The ignorance of a free spirit against the needs of a young man trying to find his true character and beliefs. Living in a bohemian household shared with 3 like minded spirited people to help pay the rent, his mother tries to establish bonds that he cannot deal with. She cannot deal with his inability to talk, and enlists the help of other females in his life to share the burden of his upbringing. Slowly life unravels for them all without understanding how. In spite of their perceived struggles, they all go on to live defined lives without any serious consequences.Written by
Shares a lot of similarities to Almost Famous (2000): Both are semi-autobiographical stories about a 15-year-old boy discovering music, falling in love with a more sexually experienced blonde, and living with a single mother in southern California during the 1970s. Billy Crudup features in both films, and has exactly the same hair style in both. See more »

Obviously there are two versions of this film in theaters. The one I saw was unbearably slow, boring, badly acted, horribly edited and scored. If someone put a gun to my head and told me to sit through this again, I'd take the bullet and end my misery quicker. Letting Annette Benning look dowdy and her age apparently is being mistaken for acting, while the rest of the cast, all good actors, are left to wander without benefit of dialogue or plot. There seems to be a stab at defining feminism in the 1970s, but good luck if you can figure out the point. The owner of my local theater told me that they were yanking this dog as soon as they contractually could, noting "the managers of the chain should have known better."
