Tagline: The love every parent fears.

Plot: Scott Spencer's best-selling novel of obsessive love is given the full Zeffirelli treatment with this film, a showcase for a young Brooke Shields, truly radiant as 15 year old Jade, the love of 17 year old David's life (Martin Hewitt). Jade and David are so obsessed with each other that they start to lose touch with the rest of the world. When her worried dad tries to separate them, David burns down their house in a misguided effort to win back their approval (he was planning on making it look like an accident, and then saving their lives). Sent to a reformatory with no chance of ever seeing his beloved Jade again, poor David is doomed to a life of unfulfilled longing. Is it a religious metaphor? An impressionistic sketch of the overwhelming tides of young love? An update of ROMEO AND JULIET? Franco Zeffirelli's swirling romantic fable is all of these, and was a box office smash besides.
