I bought this film recently and before i saw it, i read the user comments and I am shocked about the rating it has gotten! I love this film so much, I felt like I knew the characters! The film just seemed so real and we thought out. It clearly isn't the greatest film in the world etc but it sure as hell doesn't deserve to get the rating everyone else on this site has given it. I loved the film so much. It seems like an awesome film and people obviously don't care about it enough to appreciate it. The acting was great and so was the direction. I cannot say one bad word against the film. Not one bad word. All i have to say is praise.
I think everyone should give this film a chance and see how good it actually is!
