Movie Info

Tina (Laura Hunt), a troubled big-city teenager, is compelled to spend the summer on her grandparent's farm. Resentful over being yanked from her usual habitat, Tina behaves as obstructively as possible, mocking her rural neighbors at the slightest opportunity. Her attitude changes when she falls for an equally troublesome local boy (Johnson West). Told from Tina's point of view, Over the Summer is a poignant, disturbing film, unexpectedly incorporating such elements as rape and death. It is worth comparing this film to the similarly themed -- but vastly different -- Square Dance (1989).
