Coming of age drama has several dated elements and a deliberate pace but also has some fine cogent observations. What makes it really worth seeking out is that it is anchored by a beautiful, naturalistic award level performance by Patty Duke.
This is a very evocative film of the late '60s. Notable as one of Al Pacino's films but Patty Duke gives a wonderful performance. It's a shame this isn't on dvd. It perfectly captures the vibe of late '60s New York City.
