Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

That Night
Directed by Craig Bolotin
Warner Home Video 08/92 DVD/VHS Feature Film
PG-13

In this simple but beautifully organized drama, Alice (Eliza Dushku) is a preoccupied, lonely ten-year-old girl growing up in suburbia in 1961. She wants to dispense with childhood and move on to adolescence.

That yearning is fulfilled when she is befriended by Sheryl (Juliette Lewis), a sexy and independent 16 year old who lives across the street. Alice's soul expands as she finds acceptance in this strange world and gets a behind-the-scenes look at first love and all its attendant thrills and disappointments.

That Night captures that desperate childhood need to have something special to set us apart from others. Those who found it had a treasure they could use for the rest of their lives.
