"Produced in 1957, this film is an appraisal of the behavior of three teen-agers in an urban family. Two boys and a girl demonstrate in their attitudes and actions the basic similarities of adolescents and, at the same time, the individual differences deriving from developing personalities. It is a time of adjustment when the buoyancy of youth is molded into more mature forms of adulthood."
