Seriocomic story based on the memoir by Beverly Donofrio, the movie follows a young woman who finds her life radically altered by an event from her teen years. Born in 1950, Beverly grew up bright and ambitious in a working-class neighborhood in Connecticut; her father was a tough but good-hearted cop who listened to his daughter’s problems, and her mother was a nervous woman eager to imagine the worst. From an early age, Beverly displays a keen intelligence and an interest in literature, and dreams of going to college in New York and becoming a writer. However, she also develops an early interest in boys, and at 15 finds herself madly in love with a boy from her high school. However, an attempt to get his attention leads to an embarassing incident at a party, and Ray, a sweet but thick-headed 18-year-old, steps forward to defend her. Beverly and Ray end up making out, and after one thing leads to another, Beverly discovers she’s pregnant. Telling Ray is only marginally less difficult than informing her parents, and at 16, Beverly is a wife and mother. Against the odds, Beverly is determined to still finish high school and go on to college, but that goal becomes more difficult with time, especially after Beverly’s marriage begins to fall apart. Ray tries to do the right thing but has trouble holding a job, and becomes addicted to heroin.

Film Review

It was a good movie. The acting of Drew was really brilliant. Just look at her eyes, she tells everything. The way the story goes, you can feel what does the characters have been gone through all these years of broken dreams. Don’t forget the Song, dream dream dream. Well, of course you must pay an attention on watching the movie to understand it. Its really sensitive. It serves as an eye opener to the young people out there. Well probably they will know how important does an education nowadays. Beverly D’Onofrio is really a strong woman. Just like how she face the problems that happened in her life. I’ll shut my mouth now. Just go and watch the movie. I give this movie a rate of 8/10. Nice one, Bev.

I remember back when I saw the commercials announcing that this was coming to theaters. I didn’t think much of it. All I heard was "featuring Drew Barrymore", and then I decided I didn’t want to spend money on a movie ticket to see her in a leading role, since I hadn’t(and still haven’t) seen an impressive performance by her. Then, for the last week or so, I began seeing commercials for its airing on TV. At first, I couldn’t for the life of me tell the commercials apart from those advertising Home Fries(pregnant Barrymore, dimwitted father, etc). Still, I decided to give it a chance. I think I held out about half an hour, and then the film simply got too boring for me. The plot is good enough, and it develops nicely. The pacing is worse. What really tears this apart is the characters. Beverly comes off as a self-absorbed, pretentious, stubborn woman with the mind of a little girl. It’s heavily hinted at that she’s very intelligent and an excellent writer(which I understand t…

This film was released sometime in 2001 but I only came across it two years ago. My guess is that this film probably didn't receive as much advertising as it deserved.My first impression of the film was that it was a chick flick, but that didn't really matter because I have found some chick flicks actually amusing (for example: P.S. I Love You). Besides that, the story follows Beverly Donofrio who, as a child, knew exactly what she wanted to do in her future until an unexpected pregnancy at the age of 15 put her life in a hault.Drew Barrymore really is a talented actress. She is probably the most charming and easiest-to-relate-to actress in today's Hollywood. There's something about her upbeat and charismatic personality that made her so easy to love in this movie. She truly made this movie a hit and I don't think anyone could have played the role of Beverly Donofrio like she did. What impressed me the most was how she carried this movie on her own throughout and I…
