Overview

Robby Benson went from journeyman juvenile player to full-fledged star in 1973's Jeremy. Benson plays the titular 15-year-old musician who falls in love with fellow high schooler Susan (Glynnis O'Connor), an aspiring dancer; he is supported throughout the relationship by two loving, understanding parents. Director Arthur Barron's stylistic flourishes (such as shifting-focus close-ups, zoom-ins, and "groovy" atmosphere shots) firmly place this picture in the '70s. This marked the first of a handful of Benson/O'Connor teamings; the stars reportedly dated each other for a time in real life.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
A sweet little film romance, Jeremy may be a little too sticky for some, but it's endearing enough that many will be willing to overlook its flaws. Kind of the "puppy love" answer to Love Story, Jeremy doesn't go in for the tragedy of that earlier film, but the characters do indeed feel as if the events that happen to them are as worthy of notice and attention. The film's naivete, however calculated, is appealing, and there's a youthful awkwardness to the enterprise that works in its favor. It must be said, however, that Jeremy is short on action, after a while, some viewers may wish for a bit more plot, a bit more drama, even if manufactured. But for those who are willing to accept its rambling as reflective of adolescent first love, this won't matter a great deal. Jeremy benefits greatly from its leads, with Robby Benson and Glynnis O'Connor turning in the first of their performances that earned them fame as romantic teen idols in the 1970's. Both are good, with Benson perhaps more accomplished and assured than his co-star. The supporting cast is solid, and Arthur Barron's direction, while visually smacking of the 1970s, supports the stars and the story appropriately.

I saw it when I was at the age of 14! After all these years, I still thrill of watching it with sad emotion of depart in the airport. Jeremy is my all time favorite and it's about first dating, first love for teenager - Robby Benson, one of the talented artists who's not only an actor but also a fine singer (theme song - Blue Balloon / Hourglass Song). Thanked Joseph Brooks (composer of You Light Up My Life) for bringing us such wonderful great song - I always wondering why it did not even win the Academy nomination in 1973 although the winner went to Marvin Hamlisch's The Way We Were. The inner feelings of sad and happiness for both Glynnis O'Connor (sung the title song Jeremy, music by Holdridge) and Robby Benson were outlining tremendously. Both of them are remarkable and film itself colored romance with humanity in 70's. A typical love story but genuine to everyone who comes across first love during teenage periods! Many of our local (Hong Kong) film makers were sampled the script (ie: a morning kiss what's beautiful, you are beautiful, etc...) in their films or television series. If you like movie collaborates well with good music (theme song plus orchestral score), Jeremy won't disappoint you because it's share and under the fine baton of talented composer and conductor Lee Holdridge (music director for most of John Denver and Neil Diamond's concerts). If you haven't been baptized via 70's movies, you might not be well realize or adapt what's a true and first love in young life! Don't miss it! PS : It's very pity that the soundtrack CD is still not avail in the market after 35 years!?
