Fifteen-year-old Hermie (Gary Grimes) is, like most teenage boys, impatiently anticipating his first sexual encounter in this nostalgic drama based on the memoirs of screenwriter Herman Raucher.
Unlucky with girls his own age, Hermie becomes infatuated with twenty-two-year-old Dorothy (Jennifer O’Neill), whose husband has recently left to fight in World War II. Directed by Robert Mulligan, the film features an Academy Award–winning score by Michel Legrand. (1971, 103 min. Rated R.)
