Friends express their loyalty to one another, and Steven and Laurie thoughtfully try to figure out what the uncertain future will do to their relationship. But also lots of edgy, rebellious teen behavior: drag racing, drunk driving, disrespecting authority (cops are mocked, for example). Non-white kids don't exist in this slice of early '60s America. One girl says she's not allowed to listen to Wolfman Jack because her parents (mistakenly) assume he's black.
Fisticuffs but no blood. Gunshots during a robbery. A car crash and a car explosion.
Flirting and backseat necking and petting. Flashing of bare bum (mooning).
Sevearl uses of "s--t" and a handful of "damn," "ass," "hell," "bitchin'."
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
One boy gets a stranger to buy alcohol at a liquor store and then gets so drunk that he throws up. He also drives after drinking. Teens smoke cigarettes, too.
