"In 1961 Long Island, Alice is just that bit younger than her playmates. She doesn't quite understand yet about some grownup things and is teased a lot. Her heroine is anyway Sheryl, the teenager over the road who has a succession of boyfriends. Alice even copies her perfume and favourite records, though she has never spoken to her. When Sheryl's father dies suddenly and she takes up with Rick, who is viewed with horror by all the parents around, she and Alice become firm friends as they try to keep the romance going." (IMDb)
Watched That Night yesterday and i thought it was so good that it needed a new thread. So thanks to Muffy!
The movie was written (screenplay) and directed by Graig Bolotin, a guy who also wrote No Small Affair, Black Rain and Straight Talk. Pretty nice cv don´t you think.
The cast is so wonderful:
C. Thomas Howell as Rick the Rebel, one of my favorite actors. Juliette Lewis as Sheryl, pretty as a doll. Wild but honest young lady.
And i loved the kids!
Eliza Dushku, so great and so natural. I think that she has a new fan now Katherine Heigl and Sarah Joy Stevenson as her friends and those crazy Terzulli brothers. How funny was that boob cream scene
I loved the music composed by David Newman. It created a great atmosphere, music is so important. I also liked the locations very much.
Great, great feelgood movie that deserves a special edition dvd/blu-ray asap.
Oh, i own This Boy´s Life but didn´t remember that Dushku was in it. Same with True Lies.
I´ve seen her also in Bring It On, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back and Wrong Turn. She´s been announced to star in Ghostbusters III too!
