Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick, and a strange kid named Biaggio and announces that they are going to build a house there—free from responsibility and parents.

    This was a fun summer escape movie. Although, I don't see it turning into a classic like "Goonies" or "Stand by Me", it was still fun to watch and dinner afterwards was nice!

    I really liked this movie. While "coming of age" films is not a genre I'm into, this was so charming and funny, and real, in its fairytale type narrative. Thank you for organizing! and I enjoyed the dinner & talk with folks afterward.

    What a fun summer-time movie with an awful lot of heart and soul of the acting dedicated to the vicissitudes and various missteps involved in parenting- and - growing up! Although I thought the script could have relied on a little less dialogue in some scenes (the actors faces spoke plenty), the scene with the carry-out guy was comically priceless. Thnks Shawna!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
