I was an extra in this movie almost a year ago (I showed up every day and appear in several scenes), and just yesterday went to see it at the Seattle International Film Festival. I absolutely LOVED it! It's extremely honest and really captures what high school is like.
I really identified with the main character, and the ending, even though I knew what it was based on my presence at the set, really managed to catch me by surprise and left me with a heavy feeling in my heart.
There were a couple of flaws: some of the swearing was a little unrealistic (though teenagers do swear constantly), and the characterization of the teachers wasn't always completely consistent. It's title is also a little unimaginative. But overall it's still one of the best movies I've ever seen, and for that reason I'm giving it a full 10.
