Well worth a look for anyone who likes this genre, who, like me, may have missed out on it first time around.
She spends her days ignoring her mother and household chores, instead spending her time at the mall trying to get noticed by boys, only to eventually draw the attention of a much older man, played by Treat Williams, who watches her from afar, sizing her up as she deals with the boys her age, then finally makes his move.
The ambiguous ending may put off some, but I enjoy it and think it might stand up to repeated viewings to see if other details color your own opinion of what actually happens.
Give it a rental, see what you think.
Its just one of those bad adaptations from a really great story. They totally changed the ending which just ruined the whole story. I'm getting mad just thinking about it and can't continue.
The Fluffer. . . gee what can I say. . . it sucked. I think that sums it up. Only good thing about this movie was that the porn star was great eye candy (until he dyed his hair). This was the only reason I was able to watch the whole thing.
Home at the End of the World was just such a great story. Didn't read the book this one was based on so no comparisons to tarnish my thoughts. I thought it was really good except I though it ended kind of abruptly. But coming from the life I have lived I felt a great connection with the main character and found myself crying on several occations from the emotional similarities between myself and Bobby.
