Written by a pair of 17-year-olds whose parents acted as executive producers, this ambitious picture about teen life was finally released when the writers (who also edited, photographed, and directed) were at the ripe old age of 22. It stars Harrison as a struggling teen who lives with his

alcoholic father (Guy) and physically abused younger brother (Wolcott). When not protecting his brother, Harrison engages in the usual teen activities of playing football, attending parties, and juggling girlfriends, Pennington and McLain. Produced for about $250,000 (half of which came before

Universal's involvement), this is a commendable first feature but barely average in comparison to the rest of the market.
