Description
Director John Sayles traded final-cut authority for studio financing to complete this 1983 teen comedy, and reputedly regretted the decision. Critics and audiences couldn't have been more pleased. Rosanna Arquette, in her first starring role, earned Best Actress honors from the Boston Society of Film Critics as Jill, a sweet, college-bound Jewish girl who develops an unlikely relationship with a macho Italian kid named "Sheik" Capodilupo (Vincent Spano) during the tumultuous 1960s. Their chemistry is thoroughly convincing, as is Robert Downey Jr. in his film debut. Sayles spent the studio money well on one the best soundtracks of its era.
