Omg where has this movie been all my life?!?! This feels like one of those movies I should’ve watched 100 times with my mom growing up.
Teenage Lily Taylor and River Phoenix.
With a horrible sounding premise (see logline, SO SAD/HORRIBLE!!!) that moves into something so deeply emotional and honest in a way that feels effortless.
There’s a scene in this where they kiss for the first time and it’s the most honest, awkward, heartbreaking depiction of teenagers in love I think I’ve ever seen.
