A fine, inventive '70s period piece about friendship, first love, and growing up to face the hard lessons of life. show more
Essentially a coming-of-age story set in working-class North Carolina in the 1970s. But it's so startlingly original that it transcends the genre. This is a wonderful film, from puckish start to momentous finish.
One of the most inventive, funny and ultimately tragic coming-of-age movies in years.
