Storyline

Architect Leo Waters' marriage is in trouble, his wife Julia unhappy. Their son Martin drops out of college; he's home, adrift and out of sorts with Leo. Daughter Christina has entered her mid-teens with a new body and new feelings. Enter Tonya Neely, a community organizer who lives in high-rise public housing Leo designed years' before. The residents want the projects razed; she comes to Leo asking him to sign her petition. He's put off; Julia supports Tonya. Martin goes to see for himself and begins a friendship with homo-erotic potential. In the meantime, Christina puts herself at risk seeking affirmation. High pitched emotions and high-rise apartments: what will collapse first? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

According to Hayden Panettiere, Christina Waters' first appearance in the movie was her favorite scene to film because - unlike Christina - she *always* feels confident and comfortable in a bathing suit. See more »

Goofs

Martin is wearing a Richard Nixon t-shirt during his first trip to the low income housing development. Upon his return to the projects to meet Shawn, Martin is seen entering the building's doorway wearing the same Nixon t-shirt; but when the two boys are shown on the roof of the building, Martin's t-shirt has changed to one of a solid color although he has not changed clothes.

potentially decent
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that the premise of the movie was very interesting and a good reflection of how living conditions, (less then the architecture itself) affect social interaction and psychology. The activist claims that people in the projects are "piled" on top of each other and I thought it was an accurate description of the reality of public housing. The rest of the movie was less interesting and confusing at times. The mother and daughter characters were seemingly out of place, especially the mother's character. The sexual overtones were likewise somewhat difficult to connect with the story. I think more could've been done to develop what started off as a good story about a compelling urban issue.
