1h 37min · Drama, Family, War · 1 January 2013
Underclassmen is a coming of age film of 2 poor boys in California''s Central Valley: one, shot in black and white, takes place in a small town in the 60s. The second is in color and its main character lives in the barrio of Central Fresno. It brackets five years around 9/11. The two stories are told together and parallel each other in many ways: both boys have limited assets, only have a single parent and they try hard to make a plan that will give each of them the promise of a better life.The stories are both complete within themselves and the audience never knows why they are told together.........until the final scene.
