Comment: 2 brothers, Chris Masterson (Timmy, older Francis in “Malcolm in the Middle”, 2000) and his older brother, played by Stephen Dorff (The Gate 1987) sharing a room (pic 2). A Japanese teen girl sleeps in the blue room (alone?, there are 2 beds, but I don’t think that the pictured Johnny sleeps there. I haven’t seen this movie on slow speed. Also other famous boy actors.

Nice 50s bedrooms, I prefer the blue room.

Also on my overalls blog (Jimmy in overalls, rating 4).

Rating 5-6 for these bedrooms.

Comment:
Two brothers, played by Australian Ed Oxenbould (Alexander), nephew of Ben Oxenbould (Fatty Finn) and Dylan Minnette sharing a room but the beds are in the opposite corners. Their sister obviously has a room for her own.

Looks very interesting. This was a suggestion for my overalls blog (teen girl Kerris Dorsey in overalls) but I only have checked it briefly, no entry on my overalls blog yet.

This movie is based on a children book and there are 2 short movies and one animation film.

I have to recheck it later.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Update: Highway to Heaven

highwaytoheaven-normalpeople-bedhighwaytoheaven-codenamefreak

I recently bought this series on DVD (also many entries on my overalls blog, f/m). Somehow I was a bit disappointed and expected more episode with kids.

Pic 1 is from s3e19 (1987) about 2 boys, one blond and one darkhaired, around 11 yo. Obviously these brothers sharing these interesting room and one double bed (not shown sleeping though). There are also 2 other brothers shown.

Pic 2 is from s3e9 (1986) showing a University dorm with a young men sharing the room with a 12 yo student. He even asked the older roommate if he mind that he’s only 12 yo. Handsome Jeff Bryan Davis and good plot but no sleeping shown as well.

For more episodes, also involving bunk beds and summer camp dorms, see the main entry rating 6

Comment:
A boy (Arthur Gouye) sharing a room with his younger film sister (Priscilla Frey). Metal beds.

Handsome boy but the girl is very young, even younger looking (also on my overalls blog in pink bibs rating 4).

I have to other episodes of this series (both rating 6).

Rating 3 for this only. I prefer bunk beds, wooden beds and brothers.

Correct apostrophe to fix the search: Regards d’enfance:

Comment:
A blond boy in this bedroom with a robot.

Searching for a different episode for my overalls blog (rating 4) I found this short clip on YouTube.

Quite interesting series, but I think no siblings here (whre is Rosie ?). I also have an ITV series on my sailor suit blog called How We Used to Live (rating 7).

Probably there are some other interesting episodes and ITV series. But there are very few on YouTube.

Currently rating 3 for this one.

Another ITV school series here is Starting Out (1973) rating 6 and also note the entries about the (ABC) Afterschool Specials.

Comment: 2 brothers played probably by 10 or 11 yo Luis Mario Quiroz (is this really the younger boy?, left bed) and Oscar Alejandro (around 13 yo or it’s the younger boy, looking like ~8 yo but I don’t think so) sharing one room. Scene at the end of the movie.

Very interesting movie with some good scenes, peeing on the beach and skinny dipping, and I have checked it for my still missing “Italian” coming-of-age movie of my sailor suit blog.

Shirtless scenes but also different shorts and good 80s shirts.

Few bedroom scenes but good film and good age difference.

Rating 7. English title Forbidden Beach.

Comment:
Several boys and teen boys in this dorm. Several, at least 6, maybe more than 10 wooden bunk beds and some separate beds as well.

Well known coming-of-age movie. Nominated for a Golden Globe. But I don’t like it.

At least those wooden beds in a dorm are quite rare. I don’t like much dorms, if dorms then with earlier settings like in the 1930s like many French movies.

For this dorm rating 3-4. Movie rating around 4-5. I prefer US movies and ordinary bedrooms.
