"Our Song" looks at three inner-city (Brooklyn, NY) High School girl best friends with a surprisingly natural realism considering how much male DNA is behind the film. The trio of principals (Washington, Martinez, Simpson) get down with the issues of day-to-day living in the projects as they deal with parental units, girl issues, school, boys, etc. making for a pleasant and easy-going watch devoid of the usual sex, drugs, and rap-n-roll one might expect to see. An unusually believable and enjoyable watch as indies go, "Our Song" will probably play best with females. (C+)
