Reviews
Mine: A little long, but still enoyable. The performances are really good. Drew and James Woods stand out. This is supposed to be set in Wallingford, CT (where we live), but none of the setting are really here.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A single mother, with dreams of becoming a writer, has a son at the age of 15 in 1965, and goes through a failed marriage with the drug-addicted father.
