Storyline

1999, Claremont, California. Middle-class kids, in their 20s, talk trash, wave guns, hang out in a pack. Johnny Truelove, drug dealer and son of a underworld figure, threatens Jake Mazursky, an explosive head case who owes Johnny money; Jake responds by breaking into Johnny's house. On impulse, Johnny and a couple pals kidnap Jake's 15-year-old brother, Zach. Zach's okay with it, figuring his brother will pay the debt soon. Johnny assigns his buddy Frankie to be Zach's minder, and they develop a brotherly friendship. Zach parties with his captors as things begin to spin out of control. Group think, amorality, and fear of prison assert a hold on the pack. Is Zach in danger? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sonny Truelove: You wanna know what this is all about? You can say it's about drugs or guns or disaffected youth, or whatever you like. But this whole thing is about parenting. It's about taking care of your children. You take care of yours, I take care of mine.

Amazingly Brilliant and Heartwrenching Story.
10 March 2009 | by (US) – See all my reviews

How did I miss this movie????? Probably because I thought it would be a typical teen/drug movie. Boy was I in for a treat. I cannot understand why people are giving "this" movie anything below 8 STARS. Forget about the story, you can "spoil" yourself by reading most of the other 100 reviews.

What started out like a usual story suddenly turns into something so intense and interesting that it kept me wondering what would happen next for Zack. It is through his short experiences with all these unique characters that kept me asking for more. Yes the parties are over dramatic but everything else was done ever so perfectly. Every actor/actress played their part well. Anton Yelchin played a convincing portrayal of the innocence of a 15 year old. Justin Timberlake? Wow. I could not believe his acting, he started weak but after that he just blew me away. I think because he was in it I had first avoided this movie until now. Also Ben Foster played a gripping character as Zack's older brother(Jake). All the A-class stars played their short but impacting roles as parents.

In the end it left my heart heavy and pounding. A MUST SEE MOVIE that starts slow but picks up the pace so fast. I would rate this movie a 8 but because of so many PITIFUL LOW STARS I have to give it a 10. Those low scores you guys are giving are most useful for movies that REALLY SUCK which this one was not.
