Originally written in 1970, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lanford Wilson's play Lemon Sky was brought to television by way of PBS' American Playhouse anthology. Based loosely on Wilson's own experiences, the story concerns a 17-year-old boy (Kevin Bacon) who hasn't seen his father in a dozen years. Utilizing a complex flashback-flash forward technique, the protagonist recalls his six-month stay with his dad (Tom Atkins) and dad's second wife (Lindsay Crouse). Featured in the cast is Bacon's

Best noted as the flick where Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick first met.

accomplishes what it sets out to with only a few subtle hiccups, and for that it should be applauded

Audience Reviews for Lemon Sky

I just saw this movie and still trying to absorb it all. First, it has a great story about a guy who goes to live with a father, and his family, who abandoned him a long time ago. I thought Bacon was excellent as well as the other cast. It just was all over the place. The actors stop and talk to the camera at various times, almost like a stage play. The movie also goes forward and backward in time, so one feels a little disconnect with the story and where it is. Bacon made you feel for him as he finally feels a part of a family, but then everything just seems to fall apart around him.
