Storyline

Jeremy Jones is learning cello at an arts school in New York. At school he spots Susan Rollins, who practices for a ballet audition, and he falls in love on first sight. He's very diffident in nearing her, so he gets some help of his experienced friend Ralph. Susan's first impression isn't great, until she hears him play his cello. The movie paints a quiet image of him winning her heart and the development of their relationship. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Wonderful!!!!!!
27 June 2005 | by tamstratSee all my reviews

This little gem is one of the rare movies that one sees at a young age and it remains with you (at least if you are a prepubescent girl). This was released in 1973, when I was 12 years old, and I saw it at a drive-in (believe it or not) and I still remember thinking how awesome (yet sad it was) and how I hoped upon hope that my first love would be a boy like Jeremy (wonderfully and sensitively played by Robbie Benson).The love story is sweet and realistic, Glynis O'Connor plays the female love interest of Jeremy and seems to me she and Robbie Benson were involved romantically in real life during the time the movie made, if so the affection and love they displayed on the screen seemed very real.

I remember too that there was a brief nude scene, not graphic, but beautifully displayed, and all of this overwhelmed me at the age I was. I went on to read the book and it was excellent as well. I would love to see this movie released on DVD.

Why don't we see more of Robbie Benson? He was a great young actor in the 70's.
