Product Description:

Gently nostalgic, Robert Mulligan's tender and insightful look at three teenage boys' approach to the mysteries of love and sex takes place on the coast of New England during World War II. While his two friends devote their time to investigating the process of getting laid, Hermie finds himself falling in love with the young wife of a U.S. serviceman away at the war. Stumbling over their misconceptions, fears, and ignorance, the boys fumble their way toward adulthood during their last summer of youth and innocence. Noted for his skill with young actors, Robert Mulligan (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD) draws out the insecurities of growing up from his cast and will touch viewers reminiscing about their own coming of age.
