Rating:
PG
Experience Disney's poignant coming-of-age tale based on the best-selling novel by S.E. Hinton. For Tex McCormick (Matt Dillon) and older brother Mason, just growing up is the ultimate adventure, especially when Dad is always gone, Mom has passed on, and life is dealing you one challenge after another.

So begins the small-town saga of one teen's straightforward struggle to find friendship, love, and family -- and learning that growing up is about never giving up.
