Summer of '42
This quiet coming-of-age movie features a pitch-perfect mood of nostalgia and a haunting score. Teenaged Hermie (Gary Grimes) and his friends Oscy and Benjie are spending the summer of 1942 on an island with their parents. While Oscy's main concern is when and how to lose his virginity, Hermie falls earnestly in love with the older Dorothy (Jennifer O'Neill), a married woman whose Army-pilot husband is heading to the battlefront.
