A direct look into high school life.
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first movie based on high school life that I've seen that actually resembled high school. The dialogue is dead on, the characters are real, you knew (or know) people like this in your high school. You can watch the situations unfold and almost know what will happen, because you've been there before.

The movie centers around Dylan, who doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. All around him are adult figures who are putting on the pressure to make the "right" decision and take action for his future, while he's just trying to get through the last two weeks before graduation when he'll be home free with his girlfriend.

The Standard breaks away from the "clean view" of high school that most movies portray. It shows what it's like to be a frustrated teen who isn't ready to make the big decisions, or just doesn't want to yet. It allows you to feel that pressure again, of life sneaking up, of feeling like your decisions will be made without thought because everyone wants you to do what they tell you to do.

The movie comes to an eye-opening finish, giving you an accurate final vision of how high school, along with life in general, truly is.
