This film is another boring, so-called coming-of-age story.
If I have seen these characters once, I have see them 100 times.
This film and those like it have little relevance or appeal to anyone who recognizes ethnic stereotypes and unoriginal writing.
Sybil Temchen is the only bright spot. Sadly, she'll probably end up in the same club as Adrienne Shelly (good actress performs well in indies, goes on to perform well in a few bad mainstream films and then disappears into films no one who is asleep at 3 a.m. ever sees).
Maybe Temchen will get lucky with a good cable-TV series (that's what rescued Edie Falco from Shelly's fate).
Cross your fingers (and your toes) for her.
