Melody Movie Review Summary

Actors: Tracy Hyde, Mark Lester, Jack Wild

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Melody

    Melody (Tracy Hyde) and Daniel (Mark Lester) are British school kids on the verge of their teens. Although they have not yet met, they have in common a budding wish to tease/distance themselves from their well-meaning but sometimes-frustrating parents; and a restlessness for the freedom and fun that's so hard to find at their stricly regimented school.

    Daniel finds a joyful bad influence in his new friend, Ornshaw (Jack Wild,) an irreverent slacker from the wrong side of the tracks; and in the little explosives-building attempts of some other boys. Melody alternately wanders dreamily through the streets of her neighborhood alone, experiments thoughtfully (secretly) with makeup, and chats (and giggles) with her friends about boys.
    It is when Daniel and Ornshaw walk past the window of Melody's ballet class that Daniel first notices Melody, and falls instantly in love. Despite Ornshaw's disgust and jealous protestations, Daniel's prime focus becomes Melody. He skips school with her to spend a day of innocent fun at the beach. At the cemetary, they talk sweetly and seriously of lasting love. In time, and in all seriousness, they decide to get married. It is with this decision that they discover how wide is the gulf between the outlooks of pre-teens and adults.
