Auspicious film debut by Reese Witherspoon

It's so hard to be fourteen, thinks Dani Trant; the closest she's been to falling in love is listening to Elvis on the record player and nobody seems to understand her anymore. It's not like when she was a kid and could tell her problems to the Man in the Moon and he'd solve them. Things change forever for Dani when a handsome boy moves in next door; she falls for him completely, but he has eyes for her big sister.

Reese Witherspoon made her film debut in this movie and she gives a wonderfully self-assured performance. She's part tomboy and all hormones and the combination is adorable and pure star quality. The movie is ably directed by Robert Mulligan who brought us "To Kill a Mockingbird," and like it, this tender coming-of-age story is honest, spirited, and quite touching. Recommended for those who like down-home, slice-of-life stories; you won't be disappointed.
