Storyline

It's 1963. Poor little rich girl Lydia and her 14-year-old love-child Sam are banished from North Carolina while her powerful father runs for governor. They end up in Wyoming where she parties and Sam finds he's one of only two Grosvant High School students who read. Maurey is the other, a pre-pubescent girl wanting to discover what sex is about. She and Sam set out to learn with help from Lydia, who tells them it stops when Maurey has her first period. Trouble is, pregnancy comes first. In this small town, what can Maurey do, and will Sam have any say? Meantime, Hank Elkrunner, a Blackfoot, falls for the feckless Lydia, while her dictatorial dad keeps tabs on them all from afar.

Unique look at a Non Typical Family
5 May 2003 | by hm1971See all my reviews

This movie in my opinion had some very interesting twists, but I did not want my 7 yr old daughter to watch after I had seen it. In the end, you get the sense that no matter how strange the family, or who makes up a "family", that anything is possible and that no matter how rough the situation, with a strong family and group of friends that you can get though anything. This movie is one that Mothers and teen age daughters could watch together and both learn something about growing up.
