I will give this movie an 8 for a remarkable story-telling of the happy and the not-so-happy life of young adults, captured in a very common ground- the school. Well, teens are very much exposed to various stereotypes and this film showcased how life in the metro affects how a child perceives life in general. A complex story of friendship, school-life-days, peer-pressure, homosexuality, euthanasia or mercy-killing, rampant-drug-trafficking and poverty.
Director Pablo portrayed "Joyce" (A.Panganiban) as the sponge who absorbed the depths of each of her friends. This movie teaches us how to value each minute that we have in this world, that poverty can't be a hindrance for being happy. Sharing the value of life, and respecting each sensibility can create a harmonious world. It will start from our hopes and our dreams.
Good editing and screenplay! But the movie/producer should have chosen a better actor for the guidance counselor role.
