One of my best films to watch. Frankie Lymon 1950's child sensation. Hero to zero. sad but some great Frankie tunes and the storyline is good as well.

5.0 out of 5 starsincredible movie!
depicted the era of doo wop/ rock n roll era very well. I was ony 10 when this movie came out and didnt really understand the social historical context of the movie at the time, so when i came across it again (especially since larenz tate and lela rochon play main roles) i knew i had to watch it! glad i did because although its a sad story,i love the humourous/ sensitive take on frank lymons life and the era as a whole.
The use of music, costume...actually makes you feel like it is the sixties, lol at lil richard! and would've wanted to see what happened to the teenagers after but hey can't have it all!

good watch would definitely recommend it!!!
