What a nice 1983’s surprise. Found this one after looking for over half-hour for something to watch. I was expecting a simple plot, that is, nothing that would make me think about it the next day. It does look like a simple coming-of-age type of movie at first, but surely not a light one, and made me reflect a bit on my infancy.

Getting to know Robert Frost’s poem Nothing Gold Can Stay was in itself, worth the movie:

Robert Frost - 1874-1963

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
o Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

I’m adding the the novel that the movie was adapted from to my future reads.
