Brilliant Little Film
18 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Late Bloomer" is probably one of the most profoundly unique and clever films I have seen in the past decade. Director Craig Macneill's portrayal of a middle school sexual education class is not only authentic and courageous, it is also incredibly hilarious. There is a true vision at work here and it shows in the end product. This is a very well produced and directed film. The cinematography is striking and everything from kids remarkable performances (the main character is fantastic) to the wonderfully odd voice over of narrator Clay McLeod Chapman makes this film a real treasure. I highly recommend this film and this filmmaker.
