I hope someone will recognize this movie and help me find it. It is in American English, and probably came out in the late 80s or early 90s.
This movie is set in America, along the east coast (probably more north-east) during WWII. There is a group of boys, about upper grade school to middle school age, who have taken it upon themselves to watch for enemy submarines in their free time. They spend a lot of time at the beach, even in cold weather, hoping to be the first to see a Nazi submarine and become heroes. They also talk about baseball, and girls, and sex, and all those kinds of things.
One of the boys has dark hair and wears a “newsboy” cap all the time. He might be the central boy in the story.
This movie is not “Brighton Beach Memoirs” or “I’ll Remember April.”
Any suggestion are welcome. Thank you!
