The Girl Who Lives Down The Lane - The Movie

This is an old movie from 1976.  It is a psychological thriller. One of my favorite genres. The movie is about a dying man that teaches his 13 yo daughter to live under the radar, so when he dies she can live on her own in a house he has leased for three years. Jodie Foster plays the 13 yo girl Rynn. Martin Sheen plays the local town pervert and animal torturer.

Rynn meets a local boy and falls in love. I am not sure which actor plays the boyfriend. The boyfriend helps her to get out of some of the binds she gets into. I don't want to give too much away.

The movie stars Jodie Foster, Martin Sheen, Lexis Smith, Mort Shuman, Scott Jacoby, Dorothy Davis, Clesson Goodhue, Hubert Noël, Jacques Famery, and Mary Morter.

An interesting story line. I give this one 3.5 stars. It was pretty good, but not great.
