Similar to the premise of American Graffiti, this film centers on eight California high school students whose lives intersect over two nights in the hot summer of 1965. As the Watts riots begin, the young people make decisions that will impact their entire lives. Writer-director Floyd Mutrux examines at the graduating class of 1965 of Westwood High School in Los Angeles, which was featured on the cover of Look magazine in 1961. The story is narrated by the class valedictorian, Mary Beth (Lucy Deakins). Kelli Williams plays Sunshine, a prototypical flower child. Characters played by Dermot Mulroney and Rick Schroder and others struggle with decisions about the Vietnam war, aspire to be rock musicians, and take divergent paths on politics while navigating various romantic entanglements.

Since I myself graduated from High School in the 60's I can relate to this excellent movie that really told it how it was being a teenager then and the pressures put upon us then. Was this a true story since it said a book was written. Can you give me the authors name? I would like to purchase it. The acting was great. The music brought me back to those great times.

I really liked this movie. It was a sad movie to see what happen to all the kids back in the 60's. Is this based on true events cause it said in the movie that there is a book writen about it and I would love to buy the book if it is.
