The Nearing family seems to be dealing with the death of their mother by making every bad choice possible. Henry (Gregory Smith) busies himself with the lapses in judgment available to an intelligent high school boy: falling hard for the school vixen (Jordana Brewster), failing to notice the attractions of the girl next door (Ashley Johnson), and allowing his existential ruminations to distract him from any actual schoolwork. In association with John Wells Productions comes Whitewater Films' second feature, "Nearing Grace." Director Rick Rosenthal leads a stellar cast including Gregory Smith, Jordana Brewster, Ashley Johnson, and David Morse down an emotional and humorous path of teen sexuality in the late 1970s.
