Old Enough (1984)

Some people would watch this movie because it’s the debut of Alyssa Milano, but those people have no idea who Rainbow Harvest is. Rainbow was in two made for TV movies, a few TV shows and a handful of movies, including Mirror, Mirror and then she disappeared. She’s wonderful in this, a streetwise teenager who wins over Milano’s rich little girl and teaches her the ways of the world.

Danny Aiello plays her dad and instead of preaching, he beats her up repeatedly.

This won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 1984 and is probably the only movie ever reviewed on this site that has honor. So it has that going for it.

I promise to make up for this veer into respectability by watching something morally abhorrent next.

You can watch this on Tubi.
