Caroline drifts from State to State and boyfriend to boyfriend, dragging her now teenage son along with her. Finally it seems she may have met the man of her dreams, in the shape of Robert De Niro's Dwight. After excitedly making plans to stay this time and begin a new life, it becomes apparent they were a little swift to judge.
A young DiCaprio steals the show in this tale of learning how to be a man, with a sly De Niro also giving a good performance, but with a plot that drags on too long, and a script that uneasily changes from drama to comedy and back to drama, you perhaps feel these actors' talents have been wasted on a potentially great film.
