All I Want ★★ Try Seventeen 2002 (R)

Jones Dillon (Wood) is a 17-year-old wide-eyed Kansas university freshman who soon decides that dorm life is not for him. So he moves into the boarding house of Ma Mabley (Harry) and is soon pining after a couple of his neighbors—sweet would-be actress Lisa (Moore) and experienced photographer Jane (Potente). Coming of ager hasn't anything new to say but the three leads do well with their limited material. 96m/C VHS, DVD . Elijah Wood, Franka Potente, Mandy Moore, Deborah Harry, Aaron Pearl, Elizabeth Perkins; D: Jeffrey Porter; W: Charles Kephart; C: Blake T. Evans; M: Andrew Gross.
