Editorial Reviews

Set in California in the early ‘80’s, the story traces the intense summer romance between middle class Katie (Wilson) and sweet-faced juvenile delinquent (Vaughan). It’s an intimate portrait of young lovers and their world together: the joyrides, the late-night bonfires, family troubles as well as a cycle of incarceration and reunion. Falling Like This serves up a raw, contemporary story of love capturing a moment in time when two youngsters looking for love manage to leave an indelible mark on each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Special Movie for Teens and their Parents December 9, 2003
It is rare that a movie like "Falling Like This" is made as it is a realistic story about teenage romance and its affect on the whole family. Based on a true story, Katie falls in love with Boyd, a habitual offender who is also so cute and appealing that we all forget what a trouble-maker he is. As Katie is drawn further into Boyd's life, she skips school and fights with her parents and finally goes on an escapade stealing purses. It is a bittersweet time as Katie finally realizes that she has to save herself and move on with her own life.
Filmmaker Dani Minnick has assembled a great cast, including Patricia Clarkson, Elizabeth Ruscio and John Diehl as the parents and each of the actors embody people we cannot forget. Alessandro Zezza's cinematography is artful and the editing slips us in and out of scenes in a mesmerizing way. Not to be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Film to love about real kids in a real world December 10, 2003
This is the best film in years about how it is when an everyday girl falls in love with a guy who happens to be adorable and also a delinquent on his way to jail. It's not about what happens, it's about living their lives, no phoney stuff, just the way it was. The performances are ... performances? When you're into it, it's happening. Most movies, you know it's a movie and after the bling bling, who cares? This one, you care.
I love this film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful April 27, 2014
By Lynndee
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Tuned off at the first bathroom scene, which seems to be an obligatory obsession with some directors these days. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. When you think you've seen it haven't.

very interesting movie. Tells about a summer romance of Brain Vaughn who plays Boyd a quiet and strange kid. The story and acting of this young man I my special 5- performance since this is his first acting job as a young 17 year old. He is a tremendously good looking boy match with a comparable good looking young lady. A innocent attraction that goes wrong very fast.
This is a movie you like to take a date too. and get into the richer screen\ play and can't wait to see what will happen next.
Be ready for this great coming of age movie.
Highly recomend this movie. I would have for me made it 5 star but there were a few things
I did not like about it very dark in places and very noroctic depiction.of paranoia

5.0 out of 5 stars The harsh realities of young love March 24, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
No, this isn't your usual teen romance. It's gritty and realistic--it feels, in fact, like cinema verite, shot as if the director simply turned on a camera and watched the train wreck happen.

The director chose perfect, very natural actors--in fact, I have a feeling they weren't really actors, just two "real" kids chosen because they were so right for the roles. And the roles are almost archetypal. Compulsive criminal Boyd is every parent's nightmare: a very bad boy with James Dean appeal. And Katie's an impressionable little moth drawn to his flame, and yet somehow able to avoid being consumed no matter how close she gets. Watching Boyd spin more and more out of control while Katie hangs on out of a yearning for adventure that she's too young to understand or control is both heart breaking and familiar.

I know these kids. I knew kids just like them when I was young, too. I both envied and feared their seemingly fatal attraction. This movie reminded me why I felt that way. And made me feel that dread tinged with a big dose of curiosity yet again.

It's definitely not "Pretty in Pink." But if you're ready for a true-to-life thrill ride, Boyd and Katie will take you where you want to go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compassionate and Dream-like film December 9, 2003
Falling Like This showcases compelling performances by two young actors, Brian Vaughan and Megan Wilson, and well as a typically polished turn by the luminous Patricia Clarkson. Writer/Director Dani Minnick has crafted a compassionate examination of the ragged edge of suburban life as characterized by Boyd, a charming, vulnerable and inveterate juvenile delinquent whose love nearly derails the life of a free-spirited, middle-class teenage girl. The underlying themes of adolescent rebellion, adult responsibility and the seductive power of love are woven elegantly in this dream-like film.

2.0 out of 5 stars A "Tween" delight May 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If you're an adult now, you won't finish watching this. But no loss; it's free (for Prime members), like all of the other "3 for a $1" DvD's in a sale bin at the drugstore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful February 21, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Set to the music of Ani di Franco, in what appears to be the late 70's, this story of a young romance- semi good girl / bad boy will grab you with its emotion, realism and simplicity. A very sad depiction of a young man who can't or won't abandon his no future life of crime, not for his baby daughter and not for the love of his life, Katy. Brian Vaughan and Megan Wilson are excellent as are all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably stupid movie
If I could give less than one star, I would have. Also, I am sad that I can't get that hour and a half I spent watching it.

This film could serve as somewhat of a prequel to Sons of Anarchy. So far, that's what I enjoy about it

3.0 out of 5 stars Very depressing...but well done in certain parts.
The lead actor is the spitting image of a young Brad Pitt, he's also a talented actor with much potential. The female lead is a bit boring and is overshadowed by Boyd. Read more

Movie rather slow, acting was okay but not the best. Story could have been better, too many gaps. Fast forwarded to end.
