The West Coast, 1966: The Vietnam War is still young and not yet that monster it will soon come to be, the sexual revolution has only just begun, mainstream America is still slow in taking the race riots seriously - and Liza has only recently turned 16, and her hormones are kicking in. Now Liza comes from a wealthy family, but her father has committed suicide not too long ago, and her mother (Kristin Minter) has grown distant so she has actually a better relationship with their black maid (Valarie Rae Miller) than her own mum. Liza has a boyfriend, Brett (Sean H. Scully), who has a bit of a bad boy attitude, but with Liza he's the perfect gentleman - so much so that Liza at times wishes he'd push her more in terms of sex. Then though he tells her he has to move to the East Coast in a few weeks, and when Liza tells him she wants to lose her virginity to him beforehands, the two spontaneously decide to go on a road trip along the coast together. But it turns out to be not that easy for our youngsters to just have sex, out on a deserted beach she seems to vulnerable, at a hippie party they get to stoned, at a motel they're interrupted by a drunk and horny manager (Robert John Brewer), and so on. But all that only strengthens their love, so much so that sex is eventually inevitable - but then they're arrested as teen runaways ...

 

Liza, Liza, Skies are Grey is above all a really sweet film, and achieves being just that by not trying - basically everything that happens here is told in a very unexcited way, as slices of life rather than spectacle, which even includes the 1960s backdrops, props and costumes that don't feel forced or try to overwhelm the audience with authenticity. Also our heroes attitudes seem properly (but very likeably) naive and neglect any put upon hindsight period pieces often have - and as a result of all of this, this movie just feels very real and down-to-earth, very much comparable in approach to some of Eric Rohmer's best movies, where the director chose a very laid-back approach and quietude over sensationalism. And also, the very natural performances of the two leads make one really feel the movie that in all its understatement is sure to go under one's skin.
