“Impressive.” Hollywood Reporter

“Compelling.” Booklist.


A television star (Mariette Hartley) returns home for her father's funeral and renews a strained relationship with her mother (Collin Wilcox) whom she hasn't seen in five years. Seeking to relax the tension between them, the mother reminds the daughter of the many games they played when the daughter was a child (Tracey Gold). The memories only serve to increase the tension, however, and the daughter must make a decision about the future of their relationship.

The last day of the 1948 summer is a day ten- year-old Kath (Jennifer Miller) can be all the things she wants to be -- pirate captain, Tarzan, marble champion. Because she's entering the sixth grade on Monday, her mother (Radha Delamarter) has decided that Kath must get her pigtails cut off and a perm in her hair. Her mother's desire to rearrange Kath's hair is meant to change more than her looks. Kath's father (Bill Vint), who helped her build a clubhouse and taught her to play baseball, is caught in the middle.

This beautifully reminiscent film captures the heart of small town America while transcending both time and place. All audiences will enjoy this genuine tale of conformity and growing pains.
