"In the 1950s 14 year old Danni falls for next door neighbour Cort at the same time as her older sister Marie. Well done film with the first major performance by Reese Witherspoon as Danni. Apart from a few incidents theres no real drama here - still a nice pleasant watch and the cars look just great Its a bit stupid that the story makes Reese be "ugly" compared to her sister when there is minimal difference and in fact Reese is slightly better looking"

" Ella:) Hm, I don't know exactly what to think about this movie. I can't say it was boring or tiring, or had no sense. He even pulled some emotion out of me. But, as if something is missing. Don't even think of a happy ending but the depth of the story between Dani and Court. Among other things, a movie is about first love, I could say that I miss the focus on Dani's feelings after Court died. Movie is thin here. Favorite scene: My favorite scene is one where Dani and her father talks in the "

"6.2.2012 Reese Witherspoonin ura alkoi 15-vuotiaana sangen vakuuttavissa merkeissä ohjaaja Robert Mulliganin viimeiseksi jääneessä ohjaustyössä. Reese esittää maaseudulla kasvavaa 14-vuotiasta teinityttöä, joka viettää kesää kirmaillen läheisellä lammella, tutustuen samalla itseään kolme vuotta vanhempaan naapurinpoikaan. Tapahtumat sijoittuvat 1950-luvulle, jolloin Elvis oli kingi. Mulliganin hallittu ohjaus ja Reesen energinen, mutta luonteva roolisuoritus tekevät tästä "
