Robert J. Siegel directs this understated exploration of teenage love and friendship. Set during the opening of summer vacation at Myrtle Beach, the film focuses on Frankie, a quiet lass who works with her brother Neil at the family's burger joint. Frankie's best friend is the trash-talking Nicola, who helps out at the body-piercing hut next door. When Neil hires the gorgeous Josee as a waitress, Nicola can barely conceal her jealousy, while Frankie is utterly mesmerized by the nubile beauty. Later, a mysterious drifter named Heath arrives in town, selling T-shirts from the back of his van. He instantly finds himself attracted to Frankie, ignoring both Nicola and Josee. As the two fall for one another, Frankie slowly gains self-confidence in spite of the raging jealousy of Nicola. (Jonathan Crow)
