A precocious small-town ten-year-old girl (Barton) has a crush on the family's lawn boy (Rockwell), who's at least twice her age. Bonded by suburban boredom, the two form an unlikely and endearing friendship. But once their paling-around turns flirtatious, Duigan's film moves dangerously into Lolita territory, and by the time Rockwell has Barton whip off her nightgown, it's hard to believe we're in Kentucky anymore.
