Tilt is the story of a young girl (Brooke Shields) who is a pinball machine wizard, and she gets the nickname Tilt. She is contemplating running away from home because she does not get along with her parents. Skipping school one day Tilt decides to go to Mickey's Bar, where the owner helps set her up for a pinball game with an unaware gambler named Felix. As the easily hustled Felix loses, Neil (Ken Marshall) watches and is impressed with Tilt's talent. Neil tells Tilt that he is a hopeful country and western star and needs to raise money to make a demo of his songs. After hearing Neil's musical talent, she's impressed and agrees to help by traveling with him, raising cash with her pinball skills. When the two eventually end up back at Neil's former employer, "The Whale" (Charles Durning), Neil sets up a game between Tilt and The Whale. However, Neil doesn't realize that Tilt has caught on to his lies and manipulation. As a result, his plans are not going to go quite as he had hoped…
With hints of liberated sexuality at its edges (in the humorous, opening scene "Tilt", the teenage pinball wizard, hitches a ride with a trucker and feeling uncomfortable she scares him away by suggesting they have an orgy with his wife!) the film is still very innocent.
A fun, family picture and one all ages are sure to enjoy!
