During the months following their high school graduation, Jade, a sheltered young woman with a limitless future, becomes enthralled with David, a working-class boy with a troubled past who in turn falls head over heels for her. Their romance collides with Jade's controlling father's attempts to steer her clear of David, while her mother encourages the relationship to thrive and his father advises clear-eyed caution. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, two young lovers will defy logic and allow their all-consuming passion to determine their future together.
Drama Romantic - While essentially a remake of the 1981 film based on the book of the
same name, it actually ultimately bears only superficial resemblance
to both, with character names and very basic premise left intact,
making for a romance aimed at teen girls. While the darker themes
are gone and most of the sex is as well, there is some sensuality and
language that make the film inappropriate for kids.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 7 S-words; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex without nudity. VIOLENCE: A couple of punches. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: A fire and car collision. COMEDY: Some comic lines.
