| Unknown film, good performances, touching
Had never heard of this movie and turned it on because nothing else was on. Turns out it was a touching and well-acted story.

Richard Thomas--normally I don't much care for him--was excellent. There's fun here and there's melodrama, and it's a little over the top, but all in all, it's quite entertaining.

The film was made in 1977, but it doesn't seem all that dated. The sensibility and ironies, which abound, seem quite contemporary, even though it's set in 1955, and it recreates that era very well. At any rate, if you have a chance to see it, I think you'll like it.

It's also fun to see Dennis Quaid and Tom Hulce in their late teens.
