A 14-year-old girl (Reese Witherspoon) experiences love for the first time in this coming-of-age drama set in 1950s Louisiana. Complications ensue when a 17-year-old boy the girl has fallen for becomes entangled with her older sister.
While predictable and a bit muddled toward the end, this film is a pleasant slice-of-life diversion that rekindles memories of youthful infatuation. Also stars Sam Waterston and Tess Harper. Rated PG-13.
