Jewison employs an odd plucky-yet-forlorn tone in this disjointed but engaging adaptation of Bobbi Ann Mason's first novel about a headstrong 17-year-old Kentucky girl living with her PTSD afflicted Vietnam vet uncle. Lloyd and Willis both seem miscast, but she really shines and he merely keeps his head above water.
