A Love Story for Gen-Yers too young to remember the 1970 Ali McGraw-Ryan O’Neal tear-jerker, Here On Earth orbits around two star-crossed teens entangled in a fatalistic romance. Theirs is a hackneyed journey: Prep-school snob (the vacuous Klein) grows up after falling for an angelic, doomed local girl (Sobieski, preternaturally matured by her deep-timbred voice). But, bathed in golden hues and dewy greens, this cloying summer drama marks an inoffensive return to pre-American Pie innocence. C+
