Baby It's You

Overview

In the early 1960s, two very different New Jersey high schoolers share their first love in this bittersweet romantic drama, an early feature by writer/director John Sayles. Jill Rosen Rosanna Arquette is a sweet, overachieving Jewish girl heading for college to become an actor; "Sheik" Capodilupo Vincent Spano is a mysterious, confident Italian guy who pushes his way into Jill's already busy life. Sheik successfully woos Jill, and the story follows their ups and downs as teenage romantics. While that introduction...

Overview

In the early 1960s, two very different New Jersey high schoolers share their first love in this bittersweet romantic drama, an early feature by writer/director John Sayles. Jill Rosen Rosanna Arquette is a sweet, overachieving Jewish girl heading for college to become an actor; "Sheik" Capodilupo Vincent Spano is a mysterious, confident Italian guy who pushes his way into Jill's already busy life. Sheik successfully woos Jill, and the story follows their ups and downs as teenage romantics. While that introduction is lighter fare than most Sayles material, the film trails off into some unexpected plot developments, providing an original take on the "different sides of the track" genre. Sayles directs the high school scenes with a combination of reminiscence and reality, balancing the excitement of cars and the prom with the heartache, anxiety, and classwork that goes along with it. The movie is injected with a mostly 1960s soundtrack, yet the videocassette lists that "some music has been changed" for home video -- the note apparently refers to four Bruce Springsteen cuts. Matthew Modine and Tracy Pollan appear in small parts, and Robert Downey Jr. also has a tiny role. This was the fiercely independent Sayles' first film to be made with a major studio Paramount, and he claims it will be his last, as he lost final editing control.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Though not John Sayles's best film, 1983's oft-forgotten Baby, It's You is an often poignant and original look at young love and the changing lifestyles of the mid-Sixties. For the only time in his career, independent film guru Sayles traded final cut for funding, and many viewers will blame this tradeoff for the film's occasionally faulty pacing. But Sayles is too good a writer and filmmaker for his movies to be anything less than interesting and ultimately gratifying. It turns out that the key that continually saves the castle is the intelligent and insightful performances from the two leads, Vincent Spano and Rosanna Arquette. 1983 was something of a breakthrough year (false, as it turned out) for Spano: besides Baby, It's You, he also had a noticeable role in Francis Ford Coppola's Rumble Fish. Arquette would reach both a good amount of popularity and acclaim in 1985, with her three roles in Desperately Seeking Susan, After Hours, and Silverado. But, in Baby, It's You, they are at least as edgy and confident as they've ever been in their careers. You get the sense that it is not only the characters trying bravely to cut their way through life but also Spano and Arquette.

    Classic 80's movie

    ''Baby, It's You'' was a wonderful movie of the 80's. What made it so interesting to watch was the basic storyline and the characters. Vincent Spano was more then great. Its not in many movies that a poor Italian boy in somthing such as the mob, falls for a girl in which at one point he cannot have and goes to extremes to get.
