  • (Directed by Sandy Wilson; with Margaret Langrick, John Wildman, Richard Donat, Jane Mortifee, T. J. Scott) It's the golden summer of 1959.. Sandy is 12. And she's stuck in a boring, backroad town, just waiting to become an "actual" teenager. Waiting for something--anything--fun and exciting to happen. And then he happened. Looking like a dreamboat and riding a hot, racy convertible, Sandy's American cousin, Butch, comes speeding into her sleepy Canadian ranch town. And Sandy's world suddenly turns upside down. For when Butch brings along his reckless rock 'n roll ways, Sandy discovers the thrilling, adventurous freedom of youthful rebellion. And as the summer's end draws near, she also discovers the powerful, first-time feeling of love!
