| "Occupation?" ... "Revolutionary."
In flashbacks, Sissy Spacek's leading character Katherine is revealed to be a political hot-head from the start (she was never an innocence lost). As she describes to us--in an unpretentious, direct-to-the-camera way--the reasoning behind her radical decisions, and why she moved from society column to the Most Wanted pages, you grasp a real, living-breathing character at work. You might even come away with some insight into the radical mind. This is an extremely smart, perceptive and compelling picture that was made-for-television but was a lot better than most of the theatrical movies released in 1975. Spacek is remarkable, as is Henry Winkler as a hippie love-interest. Jeremy Paul Kagan directed (he also directed Winkler in the overreaching "Heroes") and his work is stark and subtle. It's a no-frills winner, a straight-forward and sad tale about the well-meaning teenager gone awry.
