An interesting story.
20 February 2006 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

I rented this film because I'm a fan of Natasha Lyonne. I honestly wasn't too interested in the dramatic theme at first. Once I put the DVD in and first saw the menu screen (with scenes from the film running) I had a good feeling about the potential. I very quickly got absorbed in the story and the underlying emotion in the main characters. It is a bit roughly edited. There are times you hear voices, and it's not obvious that it is a flashback. This can be a bit confusing, but not to the point where you lose interest in the interaction between the characters. All of the actors do a great job of quietly harboring their complicated emotions, and eventually releasing and making some measure of peace. Natasha is very much as attractive as usual, and plays a character that seems to have some unspoken issues of her own. And the film leaves you contemplating the possibilities of the futures of all the characters involved. It is an inspired work that I think is worth seeing, especially if you appreciate a coming of age story or stories of personal growth and realization.
