It is a movie that came out in 1999. The setting is Baltimore, Maryland in 1954-1955.
Anti-Semitism, race changing relations, youth dealing the issues of coming of age, the birth of rock-n'-roll, life is changing very quickly for this Baltimore family as also is for others at this time. A movie with humor about the times yet a great deal of seriousness in dealing with the times and the issues they brought.
I really liked the movie. I found some great lines said during the show. One of the best lines was said at the end of the movie by Ben the teenager who had just graduated high school:
"If I knew things would no longer be I would have tried to remember them better."
Who among us has not felt that way about some matter?
