Jason London did a incredible job in the 1991 production of "The Man in the Moon", co-starring with Reese Witherspoon, Emily Warfield and Gail Strickland. He played a very believable, confused teen (Court Foster) living next door to 2 girls - a 14-yr-old named Dani (Reese Witherspoon) and a 17-yr-old named Maureen (Emily Warfield). After meeting Dani first and slightly falling for her, he kisses her, only to meet Maureen soon after. They share an instant bond and behind Maureens family's backs, they date and end up sleeping together. Then, the day after, while Court is plowing the fields on his tractor, he reached over to retrieve his hat off a tree branch where he had left it the night before. He leaned too far and fell off the tractor, under the blades, dying. Both girls are devestated, but make up when Dani finds Maureen crying on Court's grave.
It is an incredibly touching story, and one made all the better by Jason's immaculate acting talent.
