Sweet romantic comedy about a little girl () growing up in the sixties who becomes obsessed with the beautiful, popular girl who lives across the street (). Lewis is madly in love with her boyfriend (), but gets into some pretty serious trouble and ends up having to move away for a little while (just guess what it is) . The story is told through Dushku’s innocent perspective, and though it’s highly familiar it’s still an enjoyable piece for a lazy afternoon. Dushku is adorable, and Lewis gives an excellent performance as the enigmatic girl that no one can help falling in love with.
