Time Out says

Zeroing in (with much of Mulligan's usual quiet sympathy) on adolescence and the moment of sexual awakening with the added weight of The Way We Were type of nostalgia, this is a mess of contradictions. A surprising commercial success with its tale of the teenager and the unhappy war widow - as a sort of cry tough version of Love Story? - it forever misses, unlike American Graffiti, the heady sexual climate of adolescence to concentrate on the circumstances of the sex act itself.

I thought this one of the most honest, precise and touching coming of age movies I have ever seen. And, I have seen it many times. The confusion of teenage life mixed with desire, morality and truth blends so beautifully in this film as does the 'theme music' which is outstanding. A touch of brilliance and pure acting!
