First Love

Time Out says

College romance set in an unspecified American institution. Katt, alternately called 'sweet' or 'a very special person', takes love seriously and loses his marbles over Dey. He describes her as 'fragile', but she seems surprisingly resilient, having been involved with a charmless older man (Loggia) for three years, no doubt a surrogate for the father who shot himself. Through this ogre the relationship sours, but they adapt and life goes on. Not a bad story, but a pity that director Darling spends so much time setting up such a condescending approximation of contemporary college life, full of merry japes, poignant incoherence, and all those clichés about sex for the under 21s. Don't rate Cat Stevens' mood music much either.
