Another great ensemble cast and story of growing up in America. Levinson's films never shy away from the racial/ethnic/nationality clashes in our country, but he puts it in perspective, with a hopeful outcome.
SOLID COMING OF AGE OUTING WITH A GOOD CAST! 3 1/2 STARS!

"I caught this film by chance and I am very glad I did. Lots of familiar faces,(some before we knew them like Ardien Brody and Ben Foster)in this charming coming of age film that is both funny and heartbreaking. My wife is from Baltimore and the local scenery was a treat for us. While the film is very enjoyable it seemed a bit fluffy for it's potential. Still it is a nice slice of life story with a very good cast."
An excellent film that is often overlooked

"A Barry Livingstone production, which is semi-autobiographical. The story centers on a Jewish family living in Baltimore at the height of anti-Semitism. Other racial issues emerge, such as the introduction of African American students into White schools. Despite the `weighty' content, this movie is actually a comedy, and there are several moments that are truly funny. Benefits from a great cast, including Adrian Brody - before his `mainstream' emergence."
