Product Overview

The film takes place at the vulnerable time of passage between childhood and adulthood. It's the summer of his high school graduation and Greg is headed off to college. Greg had developed a crush on his mother's old girlfriend, Evelyn, who is more than twice his age and lives across the street. The crush develops into a full-fledged love affair in the head of summer, much to the horror of both families, in particular Greg's mother.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Jeff Lipsky, who has distributed some of the most interesting foreign films and American indies of the last two decades, makes a bold but rough transition to filmmaking as writer-director of "Childhood's End," a mildly engaging but ultimately frustrating serio-comedy about adolescent friends...It's easy to detect the cinematic influences on Lipsky's debut, which aspires to be an American indie with a European sensibility but comes across as a laborious effort in search of its own identity. The concern with the pains and joys of adolescence was probably inspired by Truffaut and Malle; the occupation of the central character, a photographer-editor, may come from Antonioni's "Blowup"; the romance between a youngster and an older woman could have been influenced by any number of French films. But more than anything else, "Childhood's End" attempts to re-create the unique charm and flavor of Eric Rohmer's morality fables.
