stunningly accurate portrayal of modern high school life
23 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Standard, which is said to have been based almost entirely on actual events and characters of Jordan Albertsen's teenage days, is a remarkably accurate portrayal of the life of a high schooler in the 21st century. Gone are the days of Fast Times... & Dazed and Confused - what The Standard delivers is the unfeathered truth of what high school means to today's teenagers.

Dealing with issues of friendship, girls, drugs and the standardization of high school curriculum, the film follows the lives of a handful of teenagers as they struggle to make it through their final month of the school year. With graduation near, Dylan is forced to reconsider his post-high school plans of moving to Boston with his girlfriend Gina. Feeling the pressure from his school, friends, Gina and his father, Dylan and the rest of the cast take us through a roller-coaster ride of the life of a high-schooler.

The Standard is filmed in a raw, realistic manner giving the audience full perspective into the lives of the characters. Edgy and daring, the film does not hesitate to break the rules of conventional story telling. Breathtaking scenery and an educated use of the camera (with shots borrowed from the early likes of Welles and others) is sure to remind the audience of what cinematography used to mean to the filmmaker.

With an outstanding cast of popular young actors and a few recognizable faces for the older folk, The Standard is sure to deliver an entertaining and heartfelt cinematic experience that'll leave the audience talking for days.
