Really great film
15 May 2004 | by (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. The characters were very realistic and it made me think about my high school days! I really identified with Mayor Margaret (I think that was her name). The look of the film was really interesting. It looked like a painting or a home movie with rich warm colors. The movie starts a little slow, but finishes with a very strong emotional scene. There are alot of characters in the film, but the filmmakers did a great job of keeping the stories interesting and clear.

The director and screenwriter spoke after the show and they were very cool. Clearly a lot of thought went into the characters and the dialogue felt very natural. I haven't really seen many films like this one. I give this one a very heartfelt recommendation and hope that many others get a chance to see it.
