Quite the Crowe picture, one of his best ones, that takes a look at the days of rock when it was still cool to do drugs, have sex and be cool singing Elton John in a bus (that scene was the highlight).Teenager Mary Cummings (Jena Malone), who has "been born again her whole life," is about to enter her senior year at American Eagle Christian High School near Baltimore.Basically, the story line from this 1999 film follows the tale of a journalist who is forced to enroll in high school for a story.After not having a terribly awesome time in high school the first time through, she is in for a very surprising experience this time.In her shock, Mary hits her head in the pool and has a vision in which Jesus tells her that she must do everything she can to help Dean.
