CrissCross is a 1992 feature film based on the novel by Scott Sommer. It starred Goldie Hawn, Keith Carradine, Steve Buscemi, and David Arnott. The film had caused controversy in that it includes a scene where twelve-year-old actor David Arnott appears entirely nude (though shot from behind).
Divorced mom Tracey Cross (Goldie Hawn) raises her 12 year old son Christopher (David Arnott) in Key West in 1969. She becomes a stripper to support herself and Chris. Meanwhile, he becomes involved in drug dealing.
