City of Men


I watched City of Men and was stunned by how much it reminded me of John Knowles' book "A Separate Peace." While maintaing many of the same themes, City of Men updated the plot to the new century and a new country. But the ideas of youth, friendship, and innocence lost remain and are as strong as ever.

I recommend checking out City of Men on DVD. It's pretty powerful, and it's really beautifully photographed with a moving final scene.
