Review by michael (posted on 14-Mar-2005)

This film is a real gem. Three of the most brilliant performances you will ever see, Julie Harris, Ethel Waters and Brandon De Wilde.

A remarkable view of a teenager growing up in a world that is constantly changing around her. Looking for love, that is surrounding all the time. These wonderful friends she takes for granted are the ones she truly needs and not those of the neighbors next door.

What beautiful relationships are shown and developed between these three generations. Truly, aa lovely film.
