Quotes

Morgan: The thing about a first kiss is, you only have one, and believe me, she's gonna remember it no matter what. So, you've gotta pick the perfect moment, and that moment comes right after you've done something incredible. And you'll know the moment because you'll see it in her eyes, because she will look at you like she's discovering you for the first time, like she's never seen you before, and that's when you move in for the kiss. And that kiss will tell you everything you need to know about they ...

I've watched this 20 times and I still love it!
8 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The modern cure for every lost and cynical teen, "Palo Alto" aims to eliminate the common misconception that life must be perfect. The lifestyles of four college freshman yield separate crises that are inevitably tied together to exploit this theme.

For one character, the true meaning of fraternity brotherhood is understood--a relief granted by this film, as most college movies portray frats as only about "chicks and beer."

For another character, his life is turned around by an old bus driver and a lonely, quirky girl that is played tremendously well by Autumn Reeser.

There are other characters as well, but summarizing them here will give too much away.

To finalize: Being an independent film, it's up to the viewer to choose how to relate to each character. That said, it is definitely a "Thinker" film. So pay attention!
