don't waste your time
21 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of three films that I saw at South by Southwest this year (2006), and by far the least enjoyable. Didn't work for a number of reasons. First, an excruciatingly slow introduction. When the teens-dealing-with-suicide theme does finally get moving, the material is, quite honestly, embarrassing. I got the impression that the author of the material was trying to address something that was over her head. I have a teenage kid, but I have a hard time picturing him or any other teenager behaving quite the same way the characters in this film behave. It's more as if an adult psyche was being projected onto a kid. Who is this film going to appeal to? A teenager who can't relate to the main characters because of their behavior, or an adult who can't relate to these characters because of their age?

Bottom line - slow, amateurish, unbelievable.

Still, kudos to the crew of this film for completing something on a presumably small budget.
