Good interpretation of J. Updike's short story "A&P"
23 January 2003 | by sarah110196See all my reviews

A very good interpretation of John Updike's coming of age story. Actor Sean Hayes did an excellent job of portraying the young Sammy who is captured and taken by the girls. This short film really seems to capture the class difference between a grocery boy and the country club girls. He is their "hero" and yet they don't even know he's alive. It's classic.
