  • A hypnotic movie of harsh truth and healing compassion. It sticks with you. show more

  • Nothing in the story feels specific to that California city, or emblematic of it. show more

  • Ms. Coppola, who is Francis Coppola's granddaughter, has made a coming-of-age film about a culture in which few people — adults included — ever grow up. It's essentially plotless and slowly paced, much like the recent work of her aunt, Sofia Coppola, but astutely observed, full of fine performances and ever so guardedly hopeful about April and the boy who adores her. show more

    What a combination of misguided youth. Hopefully this is not representative of today's youth. Glad none of my children were like these in the 80's!!! Just sayin;........
