Plot Summary
It's 1955. Lenny is a 14-year old boy who is totally fascinated by sex. He is too scared to "do it," so he dedicates his summer to seeing two other people do it. Easier said than done. Caught in the act of spying, his mother and stepfather ship him off to spend the summer with his aunt and uncle in "the country" -- Queens. His plan looks like a bust and his summer seems destined for boredom, until he meets a whole new group of friends -- young teens who have a "sex club."

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    A coming-of-age film that has the jaunty mood and egg-cream flavor of a Philip Roth memoir. show more
