What I did miss then which I'm appreciating now is the soundtrack, Supertramp and Blondie so far.. looking it up it has John Lennon, Ricki-Le Jones, and that old 'Let your love flow' by the Bellamy Bros.
I cried in the ending when I first saw it, I'm wondering if I'll do the same?
Now here's a little tidbit of trivia for you - if you are a fan of Sex and the City you should also recognise Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) playing the flower-child hippie.
Here she is bottom second from right (Next to Kristy McNichol)
Amand Assante is in there as a school teacher, so very nice before he started playing cops and gangsters, and Matt Dillon - looking very young with shoulder length hair !
Kristy McNichol went on to star in the Pirate Movie (rawrrrr Christopher Atkins in his blonde blue lagoon afro!!) and Tatum went on to star in the tabloids for a while there with John McEnroe.
Other coming of age flicks that I loved way in my teens - The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles (don't know if I was into John Hughes or Molly Ringwald!) and then there was St Elmo's Fire and Less than Zero.. The Lost Boys...The Outsiders....
