Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Director David Leland's valentine to sexual candor is most notable for introducing the bright, unaffected young actress Emily Lloyd. Lloyd's uninhibited, motherless Lynda is coy and sprightly without ever resorting to hapless, sex-kitten posing. Despite the nature of the material -- the script was based on the adolescence of notorious English madam Cynthia Payne -- Leland never uses Lloyd as a mere object of desire. The sex scenes are mostly rendered in objective long shot, as it becomes obvious that the film is as much about the sexual hangups of men as it is about the relative "promiscuity" of a teenage girl. In this respect, Wish You Were Here is a fine companion to Martha Coolidge's Rambling Rose (1991): both films recognize the need for sexual curiosity and experimentation in young women, despite the consternation that they might receive from hypocritical, repressed partners.

    Not bad if you can handle Brits

    This isn't too bad a movie but it reminds me of everything that really bothered me about Britain; lousy weather, depressed and depressing people, slag, Andy Capp-type old guys chasing slag, unwed mothers, and spinelessness. The girl's cute and the dialogue interesting. The movie moves quickly, so if you want to see the British seaside as it was fifty years ago, go ahead and buy it.
