Watch in Cinema

In the early 1970s, ten teenagers (five boys and five girls, including Toronto rock band Rush's Alex Lifeson) leave behind parents, school and all other authority figures to live on a rural Ontario farm for 10 weeks. What emerges in front of Allan King’s cameras are the fears, hopes and alienation of a disillusioned generation. Come On Children is a swift, vivid rendering of the growing pains of a counterculture.
