This is a sensational movie for a number of reasons. The most notably is the fact that it is not some Hollywood teen flick, it was made in New Zealand has has a very New Zealand feel to it. It follows very closely in plot that of the book 'Alex' writen by Tessa Duder and does it real justice. It is an excellent film for anyone and especially for anyone who has ever had to wake up at four in the morning to swim laps of a pool or who knows how it feels to loose a loved one. A truely great film.
