I saw followers in a theater that was filled with Jessica Prunell' (cynthia) friends. I was amazed. It was a great independent drama. The story is great, and it does what alot of films fail in, be real. There are few movies that actually capture the way people really speak, the vernacular is the best part this movie.
The cinematography is very interesting. The entire film is made like a hybrid of a proffesional low budget film- and a college film school project.
Anyway, if you get the chance, this movie is excellent, and I suggest that everyone goes and sees it, and then they'll think twice about joining a frat.
