Movie Info

The rich kids of the title are 12-year-old Trini Alvarado and her intellectual pal Jeremy Levy. Alvarado is down in the dumps because her parents are going through a divorce. She finds a kindred spirit in Levy, whose folks split up long ago. He points out the advantages and privileges of being a child of divorce-and is so persuasive that he almost convinces himself as well as Alvarado. An early project of director Robert M. Young, Rich Kids was produced through the auspices of Robert Altman.more

Audience Reviews for Rich Kids


A pretty good drama about divorce. The young actors are really good, too. The ending was the only part I didn't care for, it could have been better.

This movie really hits home for me, the portrayals of the divorcing parents is spot on. Great acting in this movie, even from the kids. The only part I found incredible was the ending.
