Sexy rebel Emilia (Natalia Galgani) wears a Ramones T-shirt when she and Julio (Diego Noguera) first make love, while he's got a square of pale skin on his otherwise tanned chest from accidentally sunbathing with an open Proust novel. In Chilean writer-director Cristián Jiménez's odd, wistful "Bonsái" this youthful romance steeped in clingy passion and literature read aloud is offset - in alternating segments - by events eight years later: Julio is now in a convenient fling with a neighbor, convincing her the handwritten novel he's secretly been working on about that lost love is the new book by a great author who's hired him to type it out. The stunted, artfully designed show-plant of the title enters the story a little too conveniently as a metaphor for Julio's struggle to bring narrative shape to his own life (the film is based on a novel by Alejandro Zambra)

Spring: A time of rebirth. A time of renewal. A time for young love. And apparently, a time for oval capsules of joy. Won't you join us for an egg quiz?

They say we're young and we don't know / We won't find out until we grow. Well, I don't know if all that's true / 'Cause you got me, and, baby, I got you." From "I Got You, Babe," Sonny and Cher, 1965 Lane Fields and Mary Willis began dating around Valentine's Day, 1986, when he was 17 and she was 16. Within a year, each began thinking funny little Valentine kinds of thoughts--like maybe they had found a lifetime partner.

Much has been made over the last few months of Carly Rae Jepsen's age. At nearly 27, the Vancouver-based singer - a veteran of “Canadian Idol” with a 2008 debut available on iTunes - is a few years older than such chart-pop peers as Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber, the latter of whom famously catapulted Jepsen's “Call Me Maybe” to song-of-the-summer status when he tweeted his approval earlier this year. (Jepsen is set to join Bieber for a North American tour that hits Staples Centeron Oct. 2 and 3.)

Tone down a bit of already reasonably discreet sexual candor and you could believe that "Here on Earth" not only takes place in the '50s but was actually made back then. It's an old-fashioned story of young love, enlivened by an attractive cast and settings, that evolves into a shameless tear-jerker of the most manipulative sort. This may, however, make it just the ticket for girls in their early teens, for stars Chris Klein, Leelee Sobieski and Josh Hartnett are already teen favorites.

Carole Joyner Gourley, 59, who wrote the lyrics to the 1957 hit song "Young Love." Along with her guitar-playing boyfriend Ric Cartey, Gourley wrote the song when she was an 18-year-old high school student. The melody and dreamy lyrics caught on, selling more than 2 million copies in 1957. Versions by Tab Hunter and Sonny James reached the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the Billboard chart.

Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna's "Love Is All There Is" keeps saying that love isn't enough when it's their movie that's not enough. The only way this old-fashioned romantic comedy would have had a prayer of making it is if its primary focus had stayed firmly on its young lovers, played by attractive and talented Angelina Jolie and Nathaniel Marston, instead of on their warring parents and other middle-agers, laden with familiar Taylor-Bologna shtick and angst.

The weeping woman grabbed a stranger's arm--anybody's would have done. She tugged and twisted it before wailing, "I am trying. I am trying so hard to like him. (Sniff). But I . . . (sniff, pause, sniff) doooon't." Her sobs intensified as she watched her 24-year-old daughter, wearing a black bridal dress, nuzzle the neck of her soon-to-be son-in-law one recent Saturday. Then a bell tolled, beckoning them into the Little Church of the West Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

For weeks, Lionel Kelly studied the shy girl sitting a row ahead of him instead of his earth science lessons. As any 14-year-old boy would, he first noticed how cute she was. Her smooth skin, pink as seashells. Black hair dyed the color of applesauce, curls sprayed stiff, twisted into a long ponytail. It did not matter that he was black and she was a Latina, even on this Jefferson High School campus scarred by last year's violent student clashes that cut through black and brown like barbed wire.

The Valentine's Day Google Doodle is pure sweetness. A one-minute animation, drawn with childlike innocence, it depicts a little boy trying to figure out what to get for his heart's desire - a little girl who jumps rope. He buys her flowers, and chocolates (via Google, of course), but she pays no attention. He tries clothes, and balloons, a pie and a television, a top hat, an old-fashioned submarine helmet, and still she continues to jump rope, oblivious to his overtures. As a last-ditch effort he walks over to her with his own jump rope clutched in his hands and starts to jump rope alongside her. And then -- she stops jumping.

One thing you can say about Sunday night's season finale to "Breaking Bad. " That was different. Read no further if you don't want to know what happened in the fleeting seconds of "Gliding Over All. " Or rather, what didn't happen. No one got half their face blown off. No planes exploded in mid-air. No one choked on vomit and no one stood by letting young love die. In short, for once, the waning moments of a "Breaking Bad" season finale did not add to the show's body count.

Are Taylor Swift and Robert F. Kennedy's grandson Conor Kennedy dating? Paparazzi photos make a compelling argument: The “Eyes Open” singer, clad in a peach sundress, strolled through the Cape Cod town of Hyannis Port, Mass., over the weekend holding hands with Kennedy, who turned 18 last week. The pair mingled at a house party and ate at a local pizzeria, the New York Daily News reported. “He found her a seat. It was very sweet,” a source told the paper. “She was laughing and talked with a lot of little kids.” To make this “ Love Story ” sweeter, the pair relaxed with family, including matriarch Ethel Kennedy, and attended a church service together Sunday morning.

The most telling moment in "Come to the Edge," Christina Haag's memoir of her love affair with John F. Kennedy Jr., comes after his death in a plane crash off Martha's Vineyard. There are two memorial services, one for dignitaries and family, the other for Kennedy's friends. Haag, no longer his girlfriend after a drawn-out breakup nine years earlier, attends the latter. Of all the words that are shared at the informal service, Haag remembers Christiane Amanpour's the best. Amanpour was a foreign correspondent for CNN at the time, and a former roommate of Kennedy and Haag's when they lived together as friends in a rambling Victorian house in Providence while attending Brown.

Andreas Dresen's daring, uncompromising and wholly compelling German film "Cloud 9" stars Ursula Werner as Inge, a plump, 67-year-old seamstress who works at the home she shares with Werner (Horst Rehberg), her husband of 30 years. On impulse, she decides to deliver personally a pair of pants she has altered for 76-year-old Karl (Horst Westphal) instead of letting him come to pick them up. No sooner does he open his front door than he and Inge are overcome with mutual attraction. Dresen has said that he wanted to tell this love story as if the people were young, which means there are candid depictions of sex and nudity.

And by "us" I mean Generation X, generally, and the boys who cut their teeth chewing the plastic wrap off her rolled-up posters.

The thing to know about "Adventureland" is not just that it has goals above its station but that it actually achieves them. With the help of a talented cast led by Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart and a potent soundtrack, writer-director Greg Mottola has taken that most overdone of contemporary genres, the coming-of-age story, and made it engaging, bittersweet and even fun.
