Synopsis

Filmmaker Barry Levinson (TIN MEN, AVALON, DINER) continues with his take on issues and mores facing America in the ‘50s, such as race, religion and class distinction. Here, two Jewish brothers form friendships and crushes on those of a different race, religion, or economic structure.

Dove Review

Content Description

Profanity and obscenity throughout; crude sexual conversations; a sexual situation, but no nudity; burlesque striptease dancers are featured several times, with bare backsides briefly seen; teen drinking; the violence consists of a fight and a car crash, which takes place off camera; a couple of racial epithets; a drunk girl vomits; a teen, not understanding the symbolic significance of the 23rd Psalm, mocks it; questions raised about religion seem more for humor than for a true desire to discover answers; religious prejudice.
