Fond but awkwardly made teen redo of Love Story, where moving to Detroit counts as cancer. In Comp over Cries and Whispers.
Never repeated Cannes success; even there, its prize was unpopular. View of teen romance an interesting blend of the dewy and the carnal, sometimes uneasily so. Otherwise gloppy, and pretty dated.
