Susan Seidelman revisits the new suburb of Huntingdon Valley outside
Philadelphia, where she grew up in the early 1960s. Best known for
Madonna's film debut, Desperately Seeking Susan, Seidelman uses carefully observed black-and-white sequences and new actors to re-create key scenes from her time at high school, and interviews old friends who, like her, have just turned 40. The film reflects on how life was then, how they saw the future and what the reality has turned outto be.
