Old Enough is a 1984 American drama film written and directed by Marisa Silver, produced by Dina Silver, and is also Alyssa Milano's film debut. A low-budget production, the film screened at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was First Prize.
In New York City, Karen (Rainbow Harvest) is a streetwise teen from a lower-middle-class family, who pursues a friendship with 11-year-old Lonnie (Sarah Boyd). Lonnie is from a wealthy, upper-class family who live in the area. After making friends, they expose each other to the very different lifestyles they live. In the process they learn lessons each culture has to offer. The situation becomes complicated when Karen's brother Johnny (Neill Barry) shows interest in Lonnie and Lonnie begins to develop a crush on him. Soon, a sensual new neighbor (Roxanne Hart) moves into Karen's family's apartment building and Johnny becomes slightly infatuated with her. Circumstances arise that will test Karen and Lonnie's friendship.
