Movie Info

From the Academy Award winning producer of "The Mission, " "The Killing Fields" and "Chariots of Fire" comes a memoir of a most unusual family as seen through the eyes of one very adventurous child. At three, naughty Fraser climbed up on the roof. Now ten, he's going on an even more exciting journey... through adulthood. He gets his first taste of manly pleasures when his uncle's fiancée arrives: a seductive young French woman who teaches him the delicious truths about grown-up life - temptation, jealousy, passion and jazz - and gives his entire family a love lesson to remember.
