Shares a lot of similarities to Almost Famous (2000): Both are semi-autobiographical stories about a 15-year-old boy discovering music, falling in love with a more sexually experienced blonde, and living with a single mother in southern California during the 1970s. Billy Crudup features in both films, and has exactly the same hair style in both. See more »

The status of "too personal" could be its basic virtue. and its sin. because it represents a chronicle. about "80 decade, about family life in large sense, about sexual education and motherhood. and, sure, about freedom. in same measure, it is a film with precise target. remembering independent films, near to every day details too much, it is the film who could be an experience, usuful in profound sense, or just waste of time. but, out of that too easy definitions, it is an admirable work. for script, performances - the kind of film in which each actor seems be the only wise choice for his character - but, first, for Annette Bening who does a magnificent job as middle age mother, in war against her past, insecure about future, without courage to become herself, appentice of her son, discovering the essence of life next her friends. a great film. really !
