A juvenile delinquent falls in love with a beautiful Catholic girl's school student in this fact-based adolescent melodrama set in an Oregon forest. The two meet by accident when the troubled young man is out on a nature hike and sees the lovely girl floating in a small lake as she works on a photography assignment.

The question then remains: will they be able to evade the law and other authorities long enough to find happiness?

How many troubled coming of age stories could they fit in one decade......nothing ground breaking but worth a check out.

80's emo at its best. The always stunning Virginia Madsen as the confined good girl and Craig Sheffer as the good-hearted but misunderstood 'bad' boy. It is actually a well-told story with great cinematography. Another 80's gem that is totally worth watching again.

An 80s juvenile romance flick that I actually liked. This is saying a lot, since most of the 'classics' left me wanting more. The main character seemed to be the male protagonist, who is mature despite his youth. Maybe that's why I like it so much.
