This is a simple story, simply told, about a couple of Toronto juves, the boy typically smartalecky, the girl attractive, decent and naive. From truancy and petty offenses, the road is downhill until by fadeout the young couple is split, the girl pregnant, and the boy having to decide whether to go back and face the music for theft, while there’s still time to rehabilitate himself.
It’s not a flawless film by any means. Some of the dialogue is dull. The acting in instances is bordering on bush league. The camera work veers to the pretentious. By and large, however, even if the story line becomes hokey and a little soap-operaish in content, the film could be a winner.
Peter Kastner and Julie Biggs have high and low points in the leads, but they’re naturally charming enough to get away with momentary lapses in their performance.
