Directed by Academy Award-nominated helmer Richard Linklater, the story was summed up well by the leading character in his saying, "This is the story of one week in my life. I was seventeen. It was the week I slept in Orson Welles's pajamas. It was the week I fell in love. It was the week I fell out of love."
