Participant or Performer Note: Narrator: Ben Affleck.
Summary, etc.: Going All the Way is the Catcher in the Rye of the Midwest in the 1950s: a touching, funny, and brilliantly etched portrait of America in the throes of adolescence. It seethes with pent-up frustration and confusion, and nearly every episode bubbles with hilarity. In its keen-eyed look at the beginnings of the sexual revolution, it perfectly captures the mood, texture, and morality of a bygone era. Yet below the surface quaintness-the world of drive-ins, lover's lanes, and "going all the way"-is a timeless story about young men and about America growing up. The 1997 film of Going All the way, a Sundance Film Festival finalist, stars Ben Affleck, Jeremy Davies, and Rose McGowan, with Jill Clayburgh and Lesley Anne Warren.
