In this stunning debut feature in the vein of Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Sheryl works as a house cleaner during the day to make ends (barely) meet and at night looks for love at a dead-end community dance hall. Her younger son Stephen flirts heavily with juvenile delinquency while 15-year-old Marc does the same with a neighbor girl he hopes to bed before the end of the long hot summer. Gorgeously photographed with stark honesty, this snapshot of economics, class and ripening teenage sexuality in rural Virginia gives unforgettable insight into the marginalization of those doing their best to live the American dream.

I loved this film!!
This is a fantastic coming of age story with very solid acting. Sayra Player puts out one of the best performances I have seen in a long time. This is also one of most beautifully composed films I have seen as of late. I highly recommend it!!!!
