Marcia Gay Harden,
I saw this at the "world premiere" at SIFF. This movie is so wonderfully accurate, you can't help but sit and think, wow, that kid is in my high school (not to mention whoa, my high school), and you feel a connection, no matter how distant the connection may be, with almost every character. It has a lot of meaning, and is different in many ways to other films about teens. It shows a different side to a student, and is really eye opening. I thought it was great and would recommend it to everyone. It is an intense film, with a great approach to showing the characters, my meaning, not showing to much or to little, as to not affect your opinion about them other then what you see. All in all, it has humor, love, and some real heart wrenching moments, Jordan Albertson did an amazing job and I hope everyone who wants to will see it.
