    It was 1980 when I first became aquainted with this delight of a film. What a wonderous time for a preteen/teen girl. And this film, from the magique of the chemistry between actors to the enhancing quality of the original score. WOW! Everything added together equals to my favourite all-time film, ever! Thirty-six years later made it the best birthday gift I have ever received, too. I recommend this in the utmost manner to everyone. Enjoy!

    One of the best date movies ever made. Young people in a first love treated realistically and sympatheically, but with no condescension. Olivier is great; the young actors first rate. One of Diane Lane's first movies.
