Innocence is a dangerous friend

Story: Newly arrived in an up-market housing development, quiet ten-year-old Devon doesn't quite fit in. Ignoring the urgings of her social-climbing father, Devon chooses the company of Trent, who mows the estate's lawns, rather than of the girls her own age. Their friendship grows during her visits to his trailer home, but although it is completely innocent it is obvious that it would be unacceptable to the residents if they found out.
Did you know: Randy Peterson, the stuntman who doubled for Sam Rockwell in the dive off the bridge early in the film, performed the stunt a total of six times – five times completely naked, and once wearing briefs (in case an alternative shot would be needed for a US TV version). The bridge (in Louisville, Kentucky, USA) was 70 feet high and the water around nine feet deep.
